Gail Deayton

As an artist, sculpture has always been my primary focus. Despite drawing being an integral part of my creative process and thinking, sculpture has continually (consciously and subconsciously) pulled me back and demanded me to make sense of my ideas by working three-dimensionally.

 

Having lived in Hong Kong and Asia for over twenty years, the interplay between line, form and the structures of Hong Kong are visual elements that continually stimulates my creativity and work.

 

Sculpture gives me the ability to create a certain order to things and deal with the many contradictions that are juxtaposed – in our cities, traditions, cultures, and lives – which oppose, but also, interact, weave and collaborate with each other fluently and consistently . The range of materials I use (stainless-steel, bronze, glass and concrete), reflect, marry and challenge these differences”.

 

As well as creating her sculpture in her studio in North Point, Gail runs Design Thinking workshops for corporations.

 

Born in the UK in 1973, Gail studied Fine Art Sculpture at Manchester, graduation in 1994. In 1997 she moved to Hong Kong, having also lived in Dubai and Indonesia.
