The artist Jonas Wood

  • Contemporary US artist with influences from Pop Art and Cubism.
  • Known for his depictions of interiors, often based on photographic models.
  • First solo show in 2006, through which he was discovered by artist Mark Grotjahn.

Jonas Wood, born 1977 in Boston, is an American contemporary artist who is influenced by Henri Matisse, Alex Katz and David Hockney. He creates collages, drawings and photographs in the style of Pop Art as well as Cubism. His paintings mostly show figurative forms of representation such as abstract portraits, still lifes or interiors, while now and then he also works alone with geometric forms.

Wood came into contact with fine art at an early age, for example through his grandfather's art collection, which included works by important artists such as Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol and Alexander Calder. He initially studied psychology at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York, but soon turned to studying art at the University of Washington, where he graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in 2002.

During his studies, Wood mainly used photographs as the basis for his work - he made photo collages or »translated« these photographs into drawings and later into paintings. This working technique continues to the present day. For example, he uses simple photographs of interiors as models for his »two-dimensional« interpretations of three-dimensional spaces in the style of contemporary Pop Art.

His numerous illustrations of these rooms, often lush with indoor plants, were described by the Huffington Post in 2013 as a successful balancing act »between an incredible sharpness of modernity« and the »familiar feeling of home«.

After graduating, Wood moved to Los Angeles, where he still lives and shares a studio with his wife and (ceramic) artist Shio Kusaka. The two often work together and design joint art projects - for example, Kusaka's ceramic motifs appear in Wood's paintings and vice versa. Wood had his first solo exhibition in 2006 at the Black Dragon Society gallery in Los Angeles, where he was discovered by artist Mark Grotjahn. One year later, his works were then shown as part of a solo show at the Anton Kern Gallery in New York.

Further solo exhibitions followed at the Dallas Museum of Art (2019), the Museum Voorlinden, the Lever House in New York (2014) and the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles (2010). Meanwhile, his works are part of the collections of established museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum in New York or the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Der Künstler Jonas Wood

  • Zeitgenössischer US-amerikanischer Künstler mit Einflüssen von Pop-Art und Kubismus.
  • Bekannt für seine Innenraumabbildunen, die oft auf fotografischen Vorlagen basieren.
  • Erste Einzelschau 2006, durch die er vom Künstler Mark Grotjahn entdeckt wurde.

Jonas Wood, geb. 1977 in Boston, ist ein US-amerikanischer zeitgenössischer Künstler mit Einflüssen von Henri Matisse, Alex Katz und David Hockney. Er fertigt Collagen, Zeichnungen und Fotografien im Stile der Pop-Art sowie des Kubismus an. Seine Gemälde zeigen größtenteils figurative Darstellungsformen wie abstrakte Porträts, Stillleben oder Interieur, während er hin und wieder auch allein mit geometrischen Formen arbeitet.

Wood kam schon früh mit bildender Kunst in Berührung, etwa durch die Kunstsammlung seines Großvaters, die Arbeiten von bedeutenden Künstlern wie Francis Bacon, Andy Warhol oder Alexander Calder umfasste. Er studierte zunächst Psychologie an den Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York, widmete sich jedoch bald darauf einem Kunststudium an der University of Washington, wo er 2002 seinen Master of Fine Arts erlangte.

Während des Studiums beschäftigte Wood sich hauptsächlich mit Fotos als Ausgangspunkt seiner Arbeiten – er stellte Fotocollagen her oder »übersetzte« diese Fotografien in Zeichnungen und später in Gemälde. Diese Arbeitstechnik setzt sich bis heute fort. So nutzt er z. B. simple Fotos von Innenräumen als Vorlage für seine »zweidimensionalen« Interpretationen der dreidimensionalen Räume im Stile der zeitgenössischen Pop-Art.

Seine zahlreichen Abbildungen dieser Räume, die oftmals üppig mit Zimmerpflanzen ausgestattet sind, wurden von der Huffington Post 2013 etwa als gelungener Spagat »zwischen einer unglaublichen Schärfe an Modernität« und dem »vertrauten Gefühl von Heimat« beschrieben.

Nach seinem Abschluss zog Wood nach Los Angeles, wo er noch immer lebt und sich inzwischen ein Atelier mit seiner Frau und (Keramik-)Künstlerin Shio Kusaka teilt. Beide arbeiten häufig zusammen und entwerfen gemeinsame Kunstprojekte – so tauchen Kusakas Keramikmotive in Woods Gemälden auf und umgekehrt. Seine erste Soloausstellung hatte Wood 2006 in der Galerie Black Dragon Society in Los Angeles, wo er vom Künstler Mark Grotjahn entdeckt wurde. Ein Jahr später wurden seine Werke dann im Rahmen einer Einzelschau in der Anton Kern Gallery in New York gezeigt.

Es folgten weitere Einzelausstellungen im Dallas Museum of Art (2019), dem Museum Voorlinden, im Lever House in New York (2014) und im Hammer Museum in Los Angeles (2010). Indessen gehören seine Werke zu den Sammlungen etablierter Museen wie dem Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, dem Guggenheim Museum in New York oder dem Museum of Modern Art in New York.
