British, b. 1948
Biography
"Bill Woodrow studied at Winchester School of Arts and at St. Martin’s School of Art, London before spending one year at Chelsea School of Art, London. His first solo exhibition was at the Whitechapel Gallery, London in 1972. In the early 1980s he represented Britain at Biennales in Sydney (1982), Paris (1982, 1985) and Sâo Paulo (1983). In 1986 he was a finalist in the Turner Prize at the Tate Gallery, London. Woodrow’s work is characterised by his use of domestic and urban objects to make sculptures in which the original identity of his materials is still evident. Since the late 1980s he has expanded his range of materials to include welded steel and cast bronze." (The Royal Academy of Arts)
