Amanda Wojick’s visual art often combines sculpture, collage, and painting. Using ordinary materials such as paper, glue, wood and tape, Wojick creates brightly colored dimensional fields of irregular lines, circles, and rectangles. She is interested in the friction between public and private space, as well as the politics and potentials of materiality. Her projects have engaged subjects including landscape, routine, history, and the cultural space of the home.
Wojick is the recipient of national fellowships and awards from the MacDowell Colony, Mass MoCA, the Ucross Foundation, the Portland Art Museum, the Oregon Arts Commission and Ford Family Foundation, the Ragdale Foundation, and Sculpture Space. Her work is in public and private collections including the Portland Art Museum and the Tacoma Art Museum, and she is represented by the Elizabeth Leach Gallery.
Wojick has exhibited her work at Stene Projects (Stockholm, Sweden), Nina Freudenheim (Buffalo, NY), Susan Hobbs (Toronto, Canada), Gridspace (Brooklyn, NY), Tiger Strikes Asteroid (Chicago, IL) and SPACES (Cleveland, OH), and at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery (Portland, OR)
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.
