Note: Since graduating from Chelsea School of Art in 1991, Rachel Deacon has exhibited extensively in London, the UK and internationally. Her distinct style of work has grown enormously in popularity and she has been published by the Art Group and CCA Galleries who both distribute her work world wide. Her imagery is derived from a carefully selected narrative, a short story, poem or extract from which she gains inspiration. Her work is not illustrative of that text, but freely interprets it and delights in the re-telling, the sentiment or idea. Her 'women' are self assured and provocative and often convey an inner strength. Naturally, through her inspiration, her paintings have a sense of narrative within them and are thoughtful or seductive, with quiet dignity and a timeless quality. Rachel's meticulous technique has won widespread critical acclaim. Through her yearly solo shows she has built up an impressive and ever growing number of loyal collectors. She also works to commission for corporate and private clients alike. She currently lives and works in London where the majority of her exhibitions are held. Rachel Deacon's most recent solo show in the USA was at the Richard J Demato Gallery (New York) in 2018.
