Lot Essay

“I follow the local sport wherever I live. I love Boston sports, Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, but I don’t hate any other teams. I went to a Dodgers game last night. The sports thing is funny. A lot of people think my work on the subject is based on being a super sports fan, because I’m from Boston or because I make these nostalgic pictures, but really the whole sports theme is just a vehicle for practicing portraiture.” (J. Wood, quoted in E. Leisz Carr, “Super Sports Fan: An Interview with Jonas Wood,” in Art in America, 9 October 2013)
