Kunstmuseum Winterthur is presenting a solo exhibition of the British sculptor Richard Deacon through November 15, 2015.
Richard Deacon’s sculptures are created from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, and ceramics, in organic and created shapes. His sculptures range from the monumental to the miniature, and are visibly striking. The pieces included in the exhibit have been created over the last decade and show how Deacon has deviated from the usual laws of sculpture.
Born in Bangor, Caernarvonshire, Wales in 1949, Richard Deacon attended the Somerset College of Art, Taunton, Saint Martin’s School of Art, London, and the Royal College of Art in London. He lives and works in London, and is the recipient of the 1987 Turner Prize.
