Jonas Wood at Shane Campbell Gallery

Image

After a long day gallery hopping by bike, it was a pleasure to step inside the serenity of Shane Campbell gallery and find such a treasure trove of paintings. Jonas Wood certainly knows his medium. There’s something so appealing about the simplicity of paint on canvas; of completely flat matt areas behind chunky brushwork with bristle traces undisguised. Lush colours too – vivid and inviting without being day-glo.

The pieces share elements of both Matisse and Rousseau’s style with their focus on bold patterns and jungle-esque pot plants. Wood’s paintings are intimate, exquisite and 100% covetable.
