Deacon has long been interested in using unusual materials and developing techniques in response to them. Here the fine bands of brass, cut into curves, enclose layers of foam. The prominent chrome rivets hold the construction together and encourage us to see its rhythmic qualities. Since 1982 Deacon has made more than fifty sculptures in the series Art For Other People. They share an exploration of materials whose qualities are readily understood and often – as here with brass and foam – contrasting or complementary.
