About

Amanda Wojick (born 1974, Rochester, NY) is an artist and educator based in Oregon. She locates her ongoing creative work at intersections of abstract sculpture and drawing, the hand and the machine, and material and visual culture. Using everyday materials such as paper, glue and tape, Wojick creates brightly colored dimensional fields of irregular lines, circles, and rectangles. Her projects have engaged subjects including landscape, routine, history, and the cultural space of the home.

Wojick’s work has been supported by awards, grants, and residencies from the Portland Art Museum (OR), the Oregon Arts Commission and Ford Family Foundation (OR), the Ucross Foundation (WY), Playa (OR), Sculpture Space (NY), the Ragdale Foundation (IL), the University of Oregon, the MacDowell Colony (NH) and Mass MoCA (MA).

She has exhibited her work at galleries including Elizabeth Leach (Portland, OR), Stene Projects (Stockholm, Sweden), Nina Freudenheim (Buffalo, NY), Susan Hobbs (Toronto, Canada), Gridspace (Brooklyn, NY), and SPACES (Cleveland, OH).  Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Portland Art Museum and the Tacoma Art Museum, and she is represented by the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.

Wojick holds two MFA degrees: from the Milton Avery School of the Arts, Bard College, and the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Her BA in Art and Art History is from Colgate University. Wojick is an Associate Professor and co-chair of the Sculpture program at the University of Oregon.  She lives in Eugene with her husband and two sons.
