Richard Peacock

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, shape, rhythm and pattern. The negative space between the elements is often an important part of the composition.

The stencils for his prints come from a variety of sources: sometimes basic geometric shapes, but often recycled pieces of packaging folded flat.

A key element of his “handmade” work is that the images are never perfect – there are imperfections, gaps, overlaps and unexpected colours to discover.
