The Sculpture of Bill Woodrow

Bill Woodrow (b.1948) has been one of the most influential and prolific sculptors working in Britain over the last 35 years. A crucial part of the 'New British Sculpture' group of the 1980s, which also included Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Antony Gormley, Anish Kapoor and Richard Wentworth, Woodrow's work was seen as succeeding the 'New Generation' sculpture of Anthony Caro and others by reintroducing narrative into sculpture through the incorporation and re-shaping of found materials. This book is the first comprehensive study of Woodrow's sculpture, and provides a full visual survey of his work from the late 1960s to the present, making use of unpublished interviews conducted by Jon Wood.
