Stephen Woodward


Stephen Woodward’s sculptural practice is primarily interested in the political. “I present landscape and landforms as images to critique human nature; our need to overlay everything with notions of identity, productivity, or settlement. The consequences are environmental and these consequences issue from nationalism, greed, ignorance and also sometimes from culture or love,” Stephen explains. Working with an eclectic range of media ranging from ceramics, bronze, stone and volcanic basalt, His sculptures are subtly integrated into, rather than being starkly imposed onto, the landscape.

Stephen was born in Quebec, Canada. He learned marble carving in Italy by working alongside artisans tasked to scale up sculptures for artists including; César Baldaccini, Barry Flannagan, Helaine Blumenfeld and Michelangelo Pistoletto. He moved to New Zealand in 1984. Since then he has produced numerous public stone sculpture commissions in China and New Zealand. Locally, Stephen’s public sculptures can be found at Hobsonville Point and outside the Trusts Arena in Henderson. His work can also be found in private collections in Italy and France. Stephen Woodward has been based at Corban Estate Arts Centre since 2014.
