Untitled With Grey Leaves (2009) is a signed lithograph by Jonas Wood depicting a withering plant in a large pot. Dynamic shapes covering the pot stand out against a plain background, confounding the viewer’s expectations of dimensions and scale. Like in many of his prints, Wood pursues here his interest in the flatness of modern abstraction, translating the three-dimensional world into simple yet captivating flat forms. The artist’s reference to the tonality in the title puts emphasis on the importance of colour to the creation of his recognizable vision of the contemporary world.
Like David Hockney and Henri Matisse, mentioned by the artist as his key influences, Wood prioritises exploring his close environment through art, in particular the domestic and creative spaces that surround him. The artist 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."
