Bill Woodrow & Ivor Abrahams

Bill Woodrow & Ivor Abrahams both have their work exhibited at the Henry Moore Institute.


Bill Woodrow (1948-) is a British artist through a varied of art subjects including drawings, prints and his specialism sculptures.  Although he was born in Oxfordshire, he was well educated in a few London art schools including Chelsea School of Art.  Bill has exhibited at over one hundred exhibitions all over the World.  Bill's sculptures are created with various of materials.


Ivor Abrahams (1935-) is a British artist who also works through prints and sculptures.  His imagery involves gardens, cityscaes, mythologies, the human figure and animals.  He uses a range of materials for both printing and sculpturing such as flock fibre, epoxy, paper foam, styrene, ceramic, steel and bronze.  Ivor traveled whenever possible to see galleries and exhibitions all over Europe.  He started to teach part-time from 1963 in several countries.  Ivor's sculptures aren't abstract, they are formed differently by creating collages 3D using photographic images which are cut and altered in different forms.  Some were even painted and for others they were cast in bronze.  After the first one man show, Ivor made some dramatic changes in his work and started using plaster and latex.  He continued sculpting over the years, when he started a garden theme, he also created drawings, prints and ceramics of the subject.  After exhibitions Ivor seems to go into a complete different direction, he still continues to sculpture today.
