“Is a British sculptor. Woodrow was one of a number of British sculptors to emerge in the late 1970s on to the international contemporary art scene, together with fellow artists like Richard Deacon and Tony Cragg. Materials found in dumps, used car lots and scrap yards formed the raw materials for his early works; by partly embedding them in plaster, he made them seem as if they had been excavated. Subsequently, he turned to large consumer goods like cars and refrigerators. He cut into their surface material and whilst leaving this material attached to the original object, manipulated it into new forms. He held his first solo exhibition at Whitechapel Art Gallery in London in 1972.
