Issy Wood


    Issy Wood (b. 1993, ) currently lives and works in London, UK. In 2018, she received her MA from Royal Academy of Arts, London. In 2015, she received her BA in Fine Art & History of Art from Goldsmiths College, London. Issy Wood’s universe of images suggests a stream of consciousness hiding something foreboding, a medieval current creeping into the millennial. Merging material and immaterial, object and belief, her work empties the contemporary of clarity and releases spirits presumed to belong to the past with an incisive binge of symbols.
