Richard Deacon, 66: ‘I wouldn’t like to feel it’d be a failure to stop’ Related Press Richard Deacon, 66: ‘I wouldn’t like to feel it’d be a failure to stop’ 15 November 2015, The Guardian

Mr. Deacon, how do you see your work as a descendent of the tradition of sculpture? I am interested in carving, I am interested in modeling, but when I left art school I found that, curiously, I didn't really know much about the history of sculpture, so I set about learning about the history of sculpture and when I first started teaching I did...
