Richard Deacon: The Missing Part

Richard Deacon: The Missing Part
Library Shelf Location 18.DEAC
Publication Date 2010
Description Richard Deacon is internationally acknowledged as one of the leading figures in contemporary sculpture. A self-professed fabricator, he has explored the potential of numerous materials, including wood, metal, ceramic, resin, fabric, paper, vinyl and plastic since the early 1980s. His sculptures, heirs to a Minimalist approach, conceal nothing of the technical processes of their production and constitute a universe of pervasively sensual and sometimes biomorphic forms. This catalogue contains a representative selection of sculptures, drawings, prints and photographs from various phases in Deacons career. The latter comprise an autonomous body of work, yet one indissolubly linked with his formal sculptural research. The book also includes a number of previously unpublished texts by the artist, which punctuate essays by Éric de Chassey, Julian Heynen, Phyllis Tuchman and Clarrie Wallis, offering a privileged insight into the development of his work.
