About Deon Duncan

Deon has a graduate degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in painting and post-modern critical theory. Seven years ago she happened to have an unexpected opportunity to sculpt from the figure, and had the epiphany of her life. Prior to that she had spent twenty-five years working as a painter but never felt the spark, the most important and potent ingredient for passion. She knew within the week that she was a born sculptor. This was what her talent was made for, and she had found it. Her enthusiasm to learn boarded on the obsessive. She spent years working hundred hour weeks, and many times resented competing social engagements. She pored over anatomy books. She acquired and assembled skeletons in order to learn structure. She talked with every figurative sculptor she could find. It took her four years to achieve the technical fluency necessary to begin to create the art that she envisioned. It took another year to hone in on subject matter and composition. The images on this sit form the kernel of what will be her lifetime’s body of work.
