Jonas Wood Prints 2

Featuring studio shots and a new interview between Jonas Wood and Tamarind master printer Ed Hamilton, Jonas Wood: Prints 2 provides an insightful view of the acclaimed artist’s collaborative printmaking process.

Following the 2018 release of Jonas Wood: Prints, Jonas Wood: Prints 2 documents Jonas Wood’s dynamic printmaking output from 2018 to 2022 and reproduces more than thirty limited-edition prints created during this period.

The selection of prints showcases some of Wood’s most familiar subjects: domestic interiors, sports imagery, botany, and still lifes inspired by his wife Shio Kusaka’s ceramic pieces. From verdant moonlit gardens to peaceful living spaces, Wood depicts everyday scenes and objects with a striking vibrancy born out of collaboration with expert printmakers.

In accordance with Wood’s personal emphasis on artistic collaboration, the catalog is organized into sections representing various printshops he has worked with—including Cirrus Gallery and Cirrus Editions Ltd., Counter Editions, Hamilton Press, Mixografia, Pace Editions Inc., and WKS Editions. The catalog also includes photography of Wood’s prints in progress and a conversation between Wood and master printer Ed Hamilton in which they discuss the evolution of printing practices and Wood’s creative influences.

Jonas Wood (b. 1977, Boston) lives and works in Los Angeles. He is known for his boldly colored paintings, drawings, and prints that combine art historical references with images of the objects, people, and spaces that comprise the fabric of his life. In 2016, he was commissioned to create an expansive mural, Still Life with Two Owls, for the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. His work is held in the collections of the Solomon R.
