Richard Deacon

Richard Dean is a sculptor, known for his large, lyrical open forms in materials including laminated wood and poly-carbonate to leather, cloth and clay. Construction and engineering are key elements of Deacon’s work as he continually changes methods, adapting it to his current sculptural approach.
Themes that run through his work include that of continuous looping, forming a balance between volume and space in the exhibition area. Organic forms also feature in Deacon’s work, reflecting in a deep-rooted interest of poems and philosophical text. His varied work exhibits a very hands-on approach that Deacon lives by, and shows that he not only cannot, but he will not, be pinned down by one style or subject matter, with constant experimentation. There is a constant two-way conversation between artist and material, and this constant movement between this conversation is shown in his website.
