Woodrow says that drawing fulfills his need for 'instant reward'. He works rapidly, using oil paint in crayon form. The elements evolve freely, with different layers of representational and abstract images. The drawings frequently incorporate references to geological or biological forms, such as the organic structures reminiscent of cells or DNA models in Untitled (95/04). Although most of Woodrow''s drawings are untitled, one shown here is called Wilson''s Phalarope, which refers to a small wading bird in the bottom corner.
