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 hometown 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 reference nature, music and subjective emotion which dictate his colour choices and use of material.
Shimmer is an abstract painting using acrylic paints and cracking clay on a stretched cotton canvas measuring 57cm x 57cm.
Special effect shiny gold paint is the backdrop to the painting, with a combination of blues scraped over the top using palette knives and brushes.
The clay gives the painting a thick cracked texture which creates an interesting composition that catches the light beautifully.
