by Samuel Deacon
Samuel Deacon is a London based abstract artist who creates beautiful textured paintings.
Samuel has been drawn to abstract paintings with a multitude of colour since studying Art in his home town in Wiltshire. He explored and developed his technique through many subjects and mediums, finding inspiration from the paintings by artists such as Frank Bowling, Gerard Richter and Jackson Pollock.
Samuel has a degree in Interior Architecture and currently works as a wine cellar designer where he is able to exercise his spatial skills, creating functional masterpieces in a combination of joinery, glass and metal. The love of materials and textures reflects in his work life and in his paintings.
Samuel's artwork is an exploration of colour and texture, achieving his signature style using a combination of materials including clay and plaster with acrylic paints, liquid paints and spray paints. Samuel's detailed compositions references nature, music and subjective emotion which dictate his colour choices and use of material.
||Another Blue One
‘Another Blue One’ is a 90cm x 90cm abstract painting using acrylics, spray paints and liquid paints over cracked clay on stretched cotton canvas.
The painting uses many colours but primarily shades of blues which led me to this deadpan title. I love the combination of golds, purples and blues and then the addition of the eggshell white liquid paint, swimming across the canvas in two sporadic channels. The patches of gold spray paint add a beautiful sheen when it catches the light, and makes a powerful contrast against the blue.
‘Another Blue One’ is on display at the Supawan Thai restaurant in Kings Cross.
