Opening Day for This Special Exhibit Has Finally Arrived at the Dallas Museum of Art

The Dallas Museum of Art will present the first major solo museum exhibition of work by American painter, Jonas Wood. Bringing together approximately 35 works across 13 years of Wood’s career, the exhibition "Jonas Wood" traces the artist’s fascination with psychology, memory, and the self to shed light on a practice that is both deeply personal and universal.

Known for his colorful and compressed depictions of the people, places, and things that populate his daily life, Jonas Wood creates works that bear clear traces of his biography in both form and content. Wood’s grandfather was an amateur painter whose personal collection of art included works by notable modernists such as Alexander Calder and Helen Frankenthaler. Wood’s family members are recurrent characters in his paintings stressing the importance of familial dynamics in shaping identity.

This exhibit is curated by Dr. Anna Katherine Brodbeck, The Nancy and Tim Hanley Associate Curator of Contemporary Art at the Dallas Museum of Art. The exhibition juxtaposes works across subject matter and chronology to provide insight into Wood’s willingness to engage with traditional genres of painting, while simultaneously exploring distinctly contemporary ideas grounded in his own signature brand of image making.

This exhibition will remain on display through July 14, 2019. Jonas Wood requires a $16 ticket with discounts for seniors, students, and military. DMA Members and children 11 and under are free.
