Biography

Sam Peacock

Biography

Inspired by rural and costal landscapes, Sam Peacock has challenged the traditional notion  of landscape painting in every aspect of his work. Peacocks, unique interpretation of landscape painting involves the use of non-traditional oil base paints, varnishes, coffee grains and a variety of raw materials, all composed on a sheet of steel. Colour, being a major aspect of the work is inspired by the colours of the land itself with each pallet being created from one specific location.

Experimenting with the balance of colour and light on steel over the last 30 years and exchanging the traditional paintbrush for a roller and a blow torch, Peacock’s unique take on art has propelled Peacocks’ career, making him one of the most sought after contemporary landscape artists of our time.

Peacocks portfolio ranges from independent gallery shows to large scale art installations for prestigious hotels and extensive interior design projects. Last year his art made its debut as a public installation piece, commissioned by Islington council, in central London. The commission stand 8 meters tall cladding brick work with steel and colour, letting the light reflect of the surface of the steel and providing an ever changing landscape using light as a medium to explore.

Other notable works can be seen in the Novotel, Canary Wharf where Peacock created his largest art work to date, spanning over 62 square meters of wall and using just over half a tonne of steel. This permanent wall covering, and installation piece completely immerses you in the rural and man-made landscape projections of Peacocks world.

Each in-situ project  is carefully crafted with on-site visits taking place to examine the space, explore light sources and how the works can transform the area.
