Jonas Wood’s Still Life Interiors

Jonas Wood - Painting

I just fin­ished installing an exhi­bi­tion at EMP Col­lec­tive in Bal­ti­more where I arranged small items and art objects in a room (more on that at a later date). So, see­ing Jonas Wood’s arranged still lifes really inter­est me. The artist paints inte­ri­ors, pot­ted plants, fish tanks, and more. They are in a flat, graphic style that ya’ll know I love.

Paint­ings like Jonas’ give us the abil­ity to be voyeurs with­out con­se­quence. We spy on the peo­ple who inhabit these spaces, tak­ing in what their tastes are, inter­ests, and more. Depend­ing on how things are arranged and kept, we could even assume things about their per­son­al­ity, too. Not only is Jonas’ work beau­ti­ful and treat to look at, it’s a treat to think about, too.
