Allyce Wood (b.1988 Seattle, USA) lives and works in Oslo, Norway. She received her BA from Cornish College of Art in 2010 and her MFA from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) in 2018. She expanded her education studying abroad at the Glasgow School of Art in the Environmental Sculpture program in 2009 and studied Digital Jacquard Weaving at the University of Bergen in 2018.
Wood uses digital and handmade processes to make installations, works on paper, and textiles with a focus on digital Jacquard tapestries. To her, the loom acts as a mediator between traditional and computerized technologies, offering a unique way to combine my online and offline experiences into images in cotton and wool.
She has exhibited her work in solo and group shows locally and internationally in the Pacific Northwest, Glasgow, Milan, Caracas, and Oslo. Wood is the gracious recipient of the City Artist Award, 4Culture GAP Grant, and City Art Walk Award in the USA, and the Diversestipend For Nyutdannede Kunstnere from the Arts Council Norway.
