What's not to love about plants and animals?

Grey Shelf Still Life (2016) is reproduced from deluxe, oversized new release Jonas Wood: Plants and Animals, published by David Kordansky Gallery. Featuring recent paintings (of interiors and landscapes with all variety of potted and natural plants plus animals including dogs of many breeds, leopards, deer, cats and even alligators) and preparatory materials like drawings, collages, prints, photographs, previous paintings and studio shots, it’s truly a window into the artist’s process, amplified by a very personal running text by the artist. “In order to live I have to paint, and I seem to always paint about my life,” Wood writes. “So I think I really focus on painting things that are important to me—my family, our pets and other animals, my studio, and the plants inside it and around Los Angeles. It’s funny that I even paint a lot about painting, but I guess it makes sense. It’s one of the most important things in my life, and I’m grateful to be able to share it with you.”
