Richard Deacon: Drawings and Prints 1968-2016

Julian Heynen, Richard Deacon

Richard Deacon (*1949 Bangor/Wales) is one of the most important sculptors worldwide. Deacon is also passionate about drawing, an activity that is highly significant for him: “I believe drawing and thinking lie very close to each other.”
Drawing has a twofold function for Deacon: alongside sketches and studies for sculptures, the artist also produced drawings independent of sculptural projects from early on. The formal scope of these autonomous drawings is substantial, ranging from early small-scale collages and large-format pencil drawings to entire series in recent years.
