Jonas Wood: Prints 2 Special Edition
This limited-edition publication is one of twenty-five special editions of the exhibition catalogue published on the occasion of the exhibition Jonas Wood: Prints 2 at Gagosian, 541 West 24th Street, New York. It documents the artist’s printmaking output from 2018 to 2022, reproducing more than thirty limited-edition prints made during this period along with brief statements from the artist. The front cover features a three-color screen print by the artist representing his signature and initials punctuated by images of one of his best-known motifs, bright orange basketballs.
In keeping with Wood’s emphasis on collaboration, the catalogue is organized into sections representing the different printmaking studios with which he has worked, including Aliso Editions, Cirrus Gallery and Cirrus Editions Ltd., Counter Editions, Hamilton Press, Mixografía, Pace Editions Inc., and his own imprint, WKS Editions. It features photographs of Wood’s prints in progress and a conversation between the artist and master printer Ed Hamilton in which they discuss the evolution of printing practices and Wood’s creative influences.
