‘Between The Eyes’ by Richard Deacon, on TORONTO’s waterfront. You can’t miss it!

This month ART + AUCTION brought us 6 pages on Richard Deacon, a London sculptor who does extraordinary things with extraordinary things.  There’s a huge Deacon sculpture in our city, near Lake Ontario, at the corner of Queen’s Quay East and Yonge Street.  Says Mr Deacon: “I learned how to do technical drawing for public commissions like ‘Between the Eyes’, 1990 for Queen’s Quay in Toronto, but computing has changed all that.  Now you can make a model, scan it, and produce the sculpture in a factory.”

  1. Sadly, it looks like a limp and twisted skeletal dumbbell.
