This vibrant monograph marks the first major survey of Jonas Wood's printmaking. Jonas Wood is inspired by the domestic worlds of plants and household objects, vases, flowers, and basketballs. Through these familiar objects, Wood explores art historical modes such as perspective and abstraction. Tracing the evolution of Wood's unique visual vocabulary through his printing practice, this catalogue reveals his understanding of line, shape, and color, and how that allows him to seamlessly transpose the vividness of his paintings into print. In more than fifty limited edition prints produced between 2004 and 2018, Wood explores visual themes such as museum interiors, tennis courts, logos, and ceramics; effectively examining the immediacy of everyday life while referencing art history and several of art's most accomplished practitioners, including Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, David Hockney, and Ed Ruscha. The prints--produced in the print studios of Cirrus Editions Ltd., Counter Editions, Hamilton Press, Wavelength Press, and more--also attest to the importance of collaboration in Wood's work.
