Retro + Active with Peter Deacon RCA will be at the Willock & Sax Gallery (Banff) from October 28 to November 5......There is a Meet The Artist Reception on Saturday, 28 October, 1 to 3 pm, which is part of the Banff Mountain Film & Book Festival Gallery Hop........Deacon's work is an exhibition of retro and current works spanning Peter Deacon’s career. The significance of the relationship between location and autobiographical history has been a significant factor in all his artistic work since 1975. Some works are of a large scale; some of it on canvas, board or copper, utilizing a diversity of mediums and processes ranging from photography and painting to etching and drawing. Parallel to this mainstream activity, he has always produced small-scale work. These intimate and immediate pieces have instigated the approaches used in more definitive works. They are deeply thoughtful considerations of place and space by an artist who continues to contribute greatly to his adopted country both with his work and with his teaching.
