Andrew Woodward

Andrew Woodward is a U.K. artist specializing in kinetic sculpture. Since graduating from Bath College of Art in 1989, he’s focused on creating kinetic sculpture / automata, and welded figurative sculptures. For the last twenty years he has lived and worked on the edge of Dartmoor, drawing on the natural world: an ‘unknown species’ of mechanical salmon, or a reanimated Dartmoor Pony skull.

The works often reference environmental issues, or as with his orreries; mechanical models of the solar system, convey a fascination with astronomy and natural history. He has worked as a prop maker for films, and recently worked with ceramicist Rob Sollis at Pinewood studios on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. He was one of a group of artists commissioned to produce interactive designs during the construction phase of the Eden Project, Cornwall.

The works explore a wide range of media and styles; wood, steel, reclaimed-mechanics, drawing and painting; figurative and abstract. There are elements of surrealism, expressionism, fauvism and outsider art, and more than a hiss of steam-punk

In order to abide by the social distancing measures put forward by the government in response to the coronavirus pandemic, the museum is sadly CLOSED to the public until further notice. Please stay safe and we hope to see you again soon.
