Richard Deacon #5

Richard Deacon in his studio, south London, 2014(?).

Rather than using his south London studio as space for a production line, like many other artists, Deacon treats his as a sanctuary, a place to think and reflect and allow ideas to take shape on paper, first, or as little clay or plastic models. “Tony Cragg, Antony Gormley and Anish Kapoor have all expanded their studio operations, whereas I have made myself nomadic,” he says. “I find it a bit paralysing to have a lot of people in the studio. I prefer to keep the studio as a private space.” Consequently, his colossal, twisted steel sculptures are fabricated at a metalworks in Bletchley, Buckinghamshire; his organic-looking ceramic creations are produced in Cologne, Germany; and everything else is constructed offsite by a network of trusted craftspeople.
