Sculptor, born and lived in London. Studied at Winchester, St Martin’s and Chelsea Schools of Art, 1967–72. Although he had a solo show in the latter year, it took Woodrow until the late 1970s to acquire a studio and build up a volume of work towards another. His reputation then grew fast in the 1980s, with a spate of solo exhibitions in Hamburg, London, Banks in Cumbria, Edinburgh, Stuttgart, Paris, Antwerp, Milan, the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford, New York and elsewhere. He showed with Lisson Gallery in London. In 1990 Woodrow held the Point of Entry exhibition in Imperial War Museum, having been invited in 1989 to use its collection as a starting point. Woodrow created his sculpture from modern domestic and urban scrap materials, such as Twin-tub with Guitar, of 1981, in Tate Gallery.
