The gallery has just been instructed to sell two wonderful paintings by British Artist Rachel Deacon. Rachel Deacon was born in 1969 and studied contemporary art at Chelsea School of Art graduating in 1991. Since then she has become a very successful artist with a very recognisable style.
Rachel Deacon focus is on the female figure. Shapes and contours of the body are used to create paintings with a strong composition, coupled with rich colours, shadow and an ambience of light. Her paintings relate back to the classical masters, although the women in her paintings are dressed in clothes drawn from 1920s to post-war.
Talking about her contemporary paintings Rachel Deacon says “I try to keep the era in the painting ambiguous. However I do love the style of the 1940’s.” Women in Deacon’s paintings are self assured and provocative. They appear to convey an inner strength and communicate a sense of narrative with a quiet dignity and timeless quality.
