TateShots: Richard Deacon – Studio Visit

‘I don’t carve, I don’t model. I fabricate’ says sculptor Richard Deacon.

Rocks, minerals, chains and a toy model of Marge Simpson’s head, are amongst the hundreds of objects in Richard Deacon’s studio from which he draws inspiration. For over four decades, Deacon has used a wide range of material in his sculptures, from wood and polycarbonate, to leather, cloth and ceramics. Bending, shaping, twisting and joining are just a few of the structural manipulations he applies, as he combines organic forms with elements of engineering.
