The pattern for the limited edition Jungle Rug is based on a shower curtain that Jonas Wood grew up with and which also appears in other work by the artist. The background is 100% natural hemp and the motif is a mix of black wool and silk with over 1.15 million knots. Whereas most carpets are washed with toxic chemicals, thus rug is made with environmentally friendly dyes and washed with only soap and water.
Jonas Wood is represented by David Kordansky Gallery and Gagosian. He has been the subject of solo and two-person exhibitions at the Dallas Museum of Art, Museum Voorlinden, the Netherlands (with Shio Kusaka), Lever House, New York and Hammer Museum, Los Angeles. His work is in the permanent collections of many institutions, including the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Guggenheim Museum, New York; The Broad, Los Angeles; Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Phaidon published the first monograph dedicated to Wood’s paintings and drawings.
