Pot With Flower Chair (2015) is a signed lithograph by Jonas Wood that exemplifies his keen eye for contemporary American life, vibrant designs, and the world of tropical plants. The print features the image of a garden contained in a square form against a white background. This is yet another example of what the artist refers to as the "landscape pot" in the title of his 2014 screen print. Similarly to Landscape Pot With Plant (2017), the vibrant image of the outdoor setting here represents the surface of a plant pot.
Creating a curious example of a picture within a picture, a motif much loved by the painters such as Lucian Freud and David Hockney, Wood uses still-life painting as an opportunity to explore the potential of simple forms. Present in the artist’s focus on the world of nature is the modernist desire to blur the line between art and life, aesthetic and experience. Wood commented in the context of the subject matter of his artworks: "You could call [my work] a visual diary or even a personal history. I’m not going to paint something that doesn’t have anything to do with me. Of all of the possible things I could paint, the thing that interests me is something that I can get close enough to in order to paint it honestly."
