Jonas Wood gives the New York Times a tour of his East Hollywood Studio, showing off a series of works from his own practice and his personal collection. “I’ve been all-in on painting since I was younger, and I realized that it was because of a lot of fear that it would all go away,” he says. “That’s not how I want to paint in the future. The pressure and psychology of that setup isn’t totally right. I would like to build bodies of work outside the calendar schedule of art fairs and shows for a little while. I love painting, and I think I can paint without having a giant carrot in front of me. I don’t think that I’m the best at painting, and I want to get better at it.”
