대담한 색채 감각이 두드러지는 회화로 각광받는 조나스 우드 (b. 1977)는 작가의 예술사적 관심과 일상에서 쉽게 마주하는 친숙한 이미지들을 결합한 작가만의 독특한 스타일을 구축해왔다우드는 그가 간직하고 있는 사진우연히 발견한 이미지혹은 다른 예술가들의 작품 등 서로 다른 다양한 이미지들을 모아 새롭게 배치한다특히 푸르른 식물과 정원화분스포츠 이미지 등이 작가만의 내부/외부 공간 속으로 투영되는데이러한 구성은 우드의 작품 중 가장 대표적인 형식인 동시에 그의 개인적 경험과 관심에서 비롯된 회화적 접근법을 강렬하게 반영하는 것이다우드는 위와 같은 개별 소재들을 미니멀한 선과 형태선명한 색채특정 공간 표현 등 작가 특유의 일러스트적인 시각적 장치를 통해 새롭게 창조하면서구상과 추상의 경계를 모호하게 한다그는 이 과정에서 색채들이 어떻게 작용하고사물들은 어떻게 구성적으로 형성되는지의 경계를 끝없이 밀어붙이는” 실험을 지속하며작가만의 그래픽성이 강하게 전개된 웅대한 회화적 공간 세계로 우리를 초대한다조나스 우드는 도예가인 아내 쿠사카 시오와 협업하기도 하는데이들의 다양한 경험은 서로의 작품 세계의 영감의 원천일 뿐만 아니라 두 예술가의 원숙한 예술적 대화로 이어진다.

 

Best known for his boldly colored two-dimensional works, Jonas Wood (b. 1977) has established a signature style that combines art historical references with images of his surroundings. His technique involves collaging and layering a vast array of images including photos, found pictures, and other artists’ works. Wood’s depiction of tropical plants and gardens, flowers, pots, and sports imageries, all of which come together in his interiors and exteriors, is the most representative of his works and reflects his approach to subject matter defined by his personal experiences. These diverse references are rendered in his distinctive visual elements including minimal lines, shapes, pure colors, and spatial forms, which blur the line between figuration and abstraction. Through this stylistic technique, he continuously experiments to “push the boundaries of how colors work and how things work compositionally” and develops exceptionally large, graphic paintings that invite us to engage with a new pictorial space. Jonas Wood often collaborates with his wife Shio Kusaka, who is a ceramist, and their diverse experiences not only serve as an additional inspiration embodied in each of their individual works, but also represent a matured dialogue between the two artists.
