Jonas Wood: Pots
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Jonas Wood at Gagosian, Britannia Street, London. It documents twenty-six paintings by Wood featuring images of pots. In these works, he invokes a lineage of pictographic objects—from classical pots to the elaborately glazed vessels of contemporary ceramists Magdalena Suarez Frimkess and Michael Frimkess. Color, depth, and narrative are present only within the contours of Wood’s depictions, which are isolated against white, gray, and black grounds.
