Anton Kern Gallery, NYC 6.30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Jonas Wood paints scenes of the world around him through the prism of his memory CORRINA PEIPON (Hammer Projects: Jonas Wood, 2010. Organized by Corrina Peipon, Hammer curatorial associate.) Join us on Wednesday, Feburary 16th, at Anton Kern Gallery in Chelsea for ICIs first New York Studio Event of 2011. Artist Jonas Wood will guide us through his exhibition of new paintings and drawings in advance of the highly anticipated opening reception. Gain insights from Wood as he discusses his multi-layered working process beginning with photo-based collages to drawings (studies), and then from drawings to the final painting (or two). Wood will divulge the inter-workings of his creative methods that he keeps tightly woven with both art and his own personal history. Jonas Wood is represented in New York by Anton Kern Gallery. He lives and works in Los Angeles. Wood received a BA in psychology in 1999 from Hobart and William Smith Colleges and a MFA in painting and drawing from the University of Washington in 2002. Jonas work has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at The Hammer Museum, LA; MinMin Gallery, Tokyo; Shane Campbell Gallery, IL; Anton Kern Gallery, NY; and Black Dragon Society, LA.
