About the Artist

Allyce Wood (Seattle) is a graduate of Cornish College of the Arts (magna cum laude) 2010 with a BFA in printmaking and sculpture. She studied Environmental Sculpture at Glasgow School of Art in 2009. Allyce has been a member of SOIL Artist Run Gallery since 2012. Her work has been shown in cities such as Glasgow, Oslo, Oakland, New York, and Seattle. Alice’s work focuses on ecological consequences of industry and human interaction. Her aesthetically complex installations, drawings and prints mindfully illustrate humanity’s negative influence on the natural world and the subsequent longterm consequences.

Allyce received 2014 GAP funding for studio rent, copper plates, and paper to create a series of large-scale etchings. The series' concept will revolve around the contradictions of current society’s relationship towards land preservation. She believes society’s passion and understanding of such expansions are clear, and still destruction continues. Each piece will contain new imagery; utilizing techniques such as aquatint, watercolor tinting, and chine-collé.
