Deacon brings together his background in the arts, knowledge of anatomy, and study of behavior to create his bronzes.
Deacon was born and raised on the family farm in Kansas. He grew up surrounded by nature and animals. He was your typical artist—as far back as he can remember, he would try to capture the likeness of the farm animals in a drawing or out of wood. His earliest memory of receiving recognition for his talents was in the second grade.
In his approach to a new work, the first rendering is in a realistic form, whether it be human or animal. After the piece has captured the form he is looking for, he then begins to accentuate the design aspect and pushes back the representational features. He is very successful in dramatizing a characteristic of man or beast.
This unique blend of Deacon’s has touched hearts and bridged gaps of collectors of realism and contemporary work alike.
