Artist Jonas Wood’s paintings give a lively view into the homes of the West Coast
Jonas Wood’s paintings are fabulously colorful and patterned depictions of life that frequently contain art within art. Wood often begins by collaging photographs he’s taken, creating composite scenes that defy the limitations of a single eye or camera.
Drawings made from these collages become both studies for paintings and standalone works, while paintings often appear again in later paintings that depict the architecture in which they have been hung. In one instance, one painting depicts a bright and tropical patterned scene, which is then depicted as the bold bedspread in another painting’s bedroom.
Layers upon layers of patterns and details combine to create a look at daily life that is both realistic and yet stylized, creating a “visual analogue to the multiple, unpredictable, and constantly evolving ways in which memory reconstructs the past.” Click here for more info.
