Richard Peacock is an artist working with screen print and woodcut.
His imagery combines elements of geometrical abstraction, op and pop art.
In his screen prints the image is constructed using building blocks of colour, tone, shape, rhythm and pattern. A strong understanding of colour and colour combinations is key. The negative space between the elements is often an important part of his compositions.
The stencils for his prints come from a variety of sources: sometimes basic geometric shapes, but often recycled pieces of packaging folded flat.
The “handmade” nature of his work is important to him – there are imperfections, gaps, overlaps and unexpected colours to discover.
