Kevin Deery

My sculptures, worked in various types of stone, represent both the human form and a distillation of the human form within the landscape. The transformation through carving and refining of a seemingly unforgiving material into beautifully fluid and flexible pieces is an ongoing challenge in my daily practice.”

Kevin Deery is a British artist well known for his figurative and abstract stone sculptures. In a long career of stone carving spanning over twenty-five years, he has developed a deep artistry in creating sensual forms that echo nature’s beauty. While Deery’s love for stone carving occupies much of his time, he is also a painter and photographer. He lives and works in Devon, United Kingdom.

Feeling the love

We spent some time looking for someone who could produce some solid wooden frames to mount our medals in. James, listened carefully to what we wanted and made us the exact high-quality frame we needed. Since then, we re-order every couple of weeks including some complex bespoke frames. We have been working together for about 10 years and I couldn’t recommend The Framing Centre highly enough.

Artmill Gallery & Framing Centre are our go to framers for The Arts Institute, University of Plymouth. They have a particular empathy for artists requirements and always produce work to the highest quality. Many of our exhibiting artists have been so impressed with the outcome that they go on to use Artmill for all their work.
