Jonas Wood - Yellow and Orange Orchid Clipping - 2018
House plants and flowers have long been a subject of Jonas Wood’s work, whether on their own, within paintings of interiors or alongside portraits of people. In his rug, Yellow and Orange Orchid Clipping , Wood renders a segment of a beautifully flowering orchid in the colorful, graphic flatness that has become synonymous with his painting style.
The hyper-graphic bravura of Jonas Wood's style has one foot in the no-nonsense Anglo-American tradition of hard-edged realism—with an affinity to artists such as Stuart Davis, Charles Demuth and Charles Sheeler and the other foot in the European Modernists such as Henry Matisse. Wood’s images contain a quirky oblique romanticism that he reveals from within everyday simple situations and objects. His graphicality and deceptively unpretentious spot-on draughtsmanship, and his rejection of stodgy atmospheric painterly effects is ideally suited for translating into a gorgeous hand-knotted silk rug.
