Jonas Wood - Evening & Day Editions London Monday, June 14, 2021 | Phillips
  • 'My paintings of tennis courts were about an interest in abstraction, and how the court becomes a geometric puzzle.' —Jonas WoodJonas Wood’s boldly coloured, graphics works, combine art historical reference with the scenes and objects of everyday life. By translating the world around him, morphing three dimensional space into flat colour and line, Wood captures the fabric of life, forming a kind of visual diary. Drawing heavily on the objects, sports, rooms and people he encounters in real life, Wood has successfully rebooted the traditional genres of landscape, still life, and interiors, for a modern audience.


    Wood’s works have much in common with the images encountered in the age of social media. With online content creators behaving as curators, a social media presence can constitute an exhibition of the seemingly authentic but ultimately contrived. Similarly, Wood’s treatment of his surroundings confounds expectations of scale and vantage point, presenting a stylistically enhanced version of the world we know.
