WOOD ART FOR SALE
Jonas Wood (1977 – Present) was born and raised in Boston, graduating high school from the Cambridge School of Weston in 1995. Wood studied at well-known liberal arts school Hobart College, majoring in psychology. By his junior year, Wood had completed his psychology major early, and spent the large part of his senior year studying art instead. Wood now holds both a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Hobart and William Smith Colleges (1999) and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the University of Washington (2002).
Wood moved to Los Angeles the year of his graduation, working as a studio assistant for Laura Owens and assistant for sculptor Matt Johnson. During this time, Wood created his own work, experimenting with montages of photographs and drawings. Wood’s multidimensional style earned him attention and popularity in the Los Angeles Art Scene almost straight away, and he held his first solo exhibition at the Black Dragon Society in 2006. Anton Kern Gallery mounted a solo exhibition for Wood the following year, and the Shane Cambell Gallery in Chicago held one two months later. Other seminal solo exhibitions have been held at the Dallas Museum of Art (2019), the Museum Voorlinden, Wassenaar in the Netherlands; Lever House, New York (2014) and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles in 2010.
His work is included in the collections of several international institutions, including the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Dallas Museum of Art; Fundación Jumex, Mexico City; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; the Marciano Art Foundation, Los Angeles; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Broad Foundation, Los Angeles; the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
