L.A. Louver is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by the British sculptor Richard Deacon, in association with Matthew Perry.

The exhibition will premiere a monumental sculpture entitled Dead Leg, 2007. Made of twisted strips of oak and stainless steel, Dead Leg stands 8 feet high, spans 28 by 9 feet, and will dominate the first floor gallery. The fluidity and grace that the artist brings to the work is achieved through technically challenging torsions within a marriage of two materials. The seemingly opposing natures of the materials - organic versus man-made - is defied, and their respective rigidity and strength united and re-formed into an abstract, graceful and dynamic structure. The sculpture will reorder the gallery environment by its presence as a complex three-dimensional drawing in space. The exhibition will also include a series of recent small-scale acrylic and plaster wall forms, which will be installed in the south gallery.
