Rachel Deacon (Abstract)

Rachel Deacon, has recently started creating more abstract work. These new paintings express a rhythmic arrangement of abstract and geometric forms, overlaying of shapes and soft colour. The negative spaces work to create harmony and direction within the composition. Rachel is interested in the experience of finding images and form in, and behind, other shapes and manoeuvring the eye throughout the surface of the canvas. She uses the precision of geometry to create an opposition to the simplciity of the gentle shapes. Muted colour acts alongside substantial contrast, affecting a dynamically-moving image.
