Interiors follows Los Angeles-based painter Jonas Wood’s previous thematic monograph, Sports Book. In this new volume, Wood (born 1977) explores his longstanding fascination with intimate interiors, such as the houses he grew up in, his studio and other spaces of his everyday life. Wood renders these interiors with a disorienting combination of scrupulous exactitude and absolute flatness. Writing in The New York Times, Roberta Smith characterizes the eeriness of his style thus: “his works negotiate an uneasy truce among the abstract, the representational, the photographic and the just plain weird.” Interiors offers a kind of self-portrait of the artist, as we get to know the arrangement of his living and work quarters and his various possessions, as they recur throughout the book.

With one foot in Modernist cool and the other in vibrant Pop Art, Jonas Wood gives breathing room to densely patterned paintings of domestic interiors that celebrate the logic of incongruity.
“I think painting’s fun,” Wood says in “Interiors,” the catalog accompanying his exhibition, on view from Mar. 31 through May 12 at the David Kordansky Gallery in Los Angeles, where Wood lives. Austere his work is not. The bold parrot-and-leaf print on a bedspread that nearly consumes a guest room fairly shrieks at the unperturbed Bertoia wire chairs that face it. (Linda Yablonsky The New York Times)
