About

Wall mounted tribal mask sculpture made of blue, black, brown painted wood. Margaret Wharton Deacon Margaret Wharton (1943-2014) was a highly regarded artist whose work focused on the manipulation of objects that were reconstructed and re-imagined into amazing and thought-provoking visions of the world. Her innovation and ingenuity, from her prowess with a bandsaw to her trendsetting temporary installations, has rightfully secured her a place in art history. Wharton’s interest in art emerged later in life, graduating from SAIC in her 30s in the year 1975. From then on, she was incredibly prolific. She became very involved and influential in the Chicago art scene. Her skill with fragmenting figures and love of double entendre coupled her with the likes of the Chicago Imagists and the Hairy Who, along with whom her work was often displayed. Wharton battled several health issues, including living with bipolar disorder, which influenced and affected much of her art. Wharton was included in numerous traveling exhibitions, especially in the 1980s and 1990s. In 1981, Wharton had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Her piece Garden Chair was included in Surrealism: The Conjured Life at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago curated by Lynne Warren, from November 2015 – June 2016.t
