Bball Studio (2019) is a signed etching by Jonas Wood depicting a studio rented by the artist from Ed Ruscha between 2007 and 2017. Released in an edition of 200, the etching inspired Wood’s later colour painting that features on the cover of a monograph published by Phaidon in 2019. Characterised by the dominance of pure geometrical forms, crisp line, and meticulous rendition of objects, the print offers a unique insight into the diverse range of sources that inspire the artist’s work. These include, but are not limited to, the sports world, natural environment, and the creative practice of others, especially the artist’s wife Shio Kusaka, known for her playful approach to the ceramic medium.
The unusual feature of the interior depicted in Bball Studio is perhaps the large number of squares and circles that embellish the walls. The squares with rounded forms inside them represent the baseball cards that frequently find their way into Wood’s works given his fascination with their bright colours and typography. The clarity and orderliness of the image invoke the representation of the interior space in such works as Home (1969) by David Hockney, whom Wood mentions as one of his major influences. The artist commented in the context of Bball Studio: "It wraps up all of these things: Nostalgia for this old studio, this great painting that we used for the cover, and the original drawing changed back into a print—eight years later—to raise money for charity".
