We are big Jonas Wood fans. Huge. His last show at David Kordansky in LA was probably our favorite of 2014. Now, he just opened a show with his uber-talented wife and ceramic artist, Shio Kusaka, at Gagosian Gallery in Hong Kong. So now we are huge Shio fans, too.

David Kordansky Gallery is pleased to announce a major exhibition by Jonas Wood at the gallery’s new location at 5130 W. Edgewood Place. The exhibition will open through January 10, 2015. An opening reception will be held on November 8 from 6:00pm until 8:00pm. Extending across three exhibition spaces at the gallery’s new building, this is Wood’s most expansive and diverse show to date. Each room will focus on a genre within his painting practice: plants, sports cards, and portraits. Also featured will be a salon-style installation of works on paper, dating from 2007 to the present, closely related to the paintings on view.

I confess, I'm a huge fan of Jonas Wood's paintings. I was first attracted to his life-sized reporductions of obscure baseball cards, but became even more fascinated by his unique and original take on still-lifes, portraits, and paintings of what appears to be average suburban living rooms. Simply put, Wood does the everyday in a very beautiful way. This month, Wood opened his fourth solo show at Anton Kern Gallery in NYC, featuring portraits of friends, tennis, news rooms, pets, and rooms.

Yesterday morning, Juxtapoz attended the press preview and brunch to honor the opening of the grand ol' fair, Art Basel Miami Beach, the reason why many fairs have grown around Miami during the first week of December. Housing some of the most established galleries in the world (Lisson, Gagosian, Marlborough to name a few), we tried to make our experience the same as we do each year. Just get lost in it all...
