Jonas Wood combines art historical references with images of the objects, interiors, and people in his boldly colored graphics. In his new paintings and works on paper, Wood translates the three-dimensional world around him into pure color and line. The artist composes these works through a process of layering and collaging, using photography, projection, drawing, and then painting. Wood confounds expectations of scale and vantage point, causing the flat picture plane to bristle with an abstract charge.
Jonas Wood is on view through July 19 at Gagosian 555 West 24th Street, New York. photographs courtesy of Gagosian
