This catalog serves as a fully illustrated look into the world of artists Jonas Wood and Shio Kusaka, published in conjunction with the artists' debut exhibition at Gagosian Gallery, Hong Kong. Both Kusaka's porcelain vessels and Wood's drawn and painted interiors are depicted within this new book in vibrant color plates and photographs. Wood and Kusaka draw from each other's work as painter and potter to probe the tensions between representation and expression, precision and chance, and influences from art history and life. An insightful new text by art critic Chris Wiley accompanies color images of Wood and Kusaka at their shared studio on Blackwelder Street in Los Angeles, where they work alongside one another to create works that draw from personal memory and their shared existence as a married couple. This book was produced with Karma, NY.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"History brims with artist couples: Surrealists Max Ernst and Dorothea Tanning, modern masters Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe and abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner. The latest twosome to join the international art circuit is Los Angeles painter Jonas Wood and his potter wife, Shio Kusaka. Together, they are helping to redefine creative collaboration."
-The Wall Street Journal

"Wood's painting style is crisp and sharp, and the intense hues that he uses are evenly deployed across the canvas surfaces, almost like a screenprint . . . It's curiously, subtly provocative."
-TIMEOUT LONDON
