Shio Kusaka & Jonas Wood
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Shio Kusaka & Jonas Wood at Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar, Netherlands. It brings together works by both artists—a married couple who share both a home and a single studio—as a way to highlight the symbiosis and distinctive natures of their respective practices as potter and painter. The mutual influences and fascination with geometry and imperfection are evident in Wood’s paintings of Kusaka’s pots and objects, which in turn borrow patterns from his work such as elements of sport and everyday shapes. The bilingual (English/Dutch) publication features texts by Jurriaan Benschop and Suzanne Swarts.
