From the publisher: The rising Los Angeles figurative painter Jonas Wood is known for his bold colors and woozy perspectives--whether his canvases depict a perfectly autonomous cactus on a yellow milk crate, a famous Chinese basketball player or a cluttered domestic interior. Compact and affordable, this first monograph takes as its subject a small slice of Wood's oeuvre: sports portraiture. Collected here are lanky basketball players, poised baseball players, sparring boxers--moments of serene waiting and explosive action. It's a compelling body of work combining an obvious love of the games with an expert eye for emotion and the thrill of the game.
