British sculptor whose work sometimes comes close to *installation art. He was born in Morley near Leeds and he studied at the *Royal College of Art. His solo exhibition at the Rowan Gallery, London, in 1974, which included the Discarded Sweater (1973, Tate) and the series entitled Young Girl Seated by her Window, was significant because it represented a reintroduction of a sense of the figure in sculpture through allusive references created by the mixing of sculptural form and found objects.
