Biography

Sam Peacock

Peacock has worked professionally as a painter since graduating from Coventry University in 1998 with a BA in Fine arts. He grew up in Rugby, Warwickshire where his love of the ever changing landscape and the politics surrounding it began.

He has worked with galleries worldwide during his career and appeared at Art Fairs in London and Europe as well as designing work which can be seen on permanent display in Hotels and Housing Projects across London.

“Fractured” was a project Peacock undertook alongside the Curious Duke Gallery in 2015 focusing on the effects of Hydraulic Fracturing within the UK. His work gave an artist’s response in the form of 52 separate images, each titled with a place name where planned fracking was to take place. His love of working with fire and chemicals was centric to the process of creating the work for this show.

“Of The Land” which opened at the Curious Duke Gallery on May 3rd 2018. It was a direct artists response to the changing landscape of the area surrounding Hastings and Pett Levels. Peacock created 18 pieces in various sizes and styles, each piece looking directly at an area around the area. His love of the countryside and some of the deserted areas and weather beaten landscapes were a defining influence behind the work.

“Unseen Landscape” took place in 2013 at the Curious Duke in London after Peacock spent time in Australia. Spending his time taking part in bushwalks and collecting rock and earth samples whilst travelling and exploring. He exhibited this first in Australia at the Kerrie Lowe Gallery during 2012 where all the work was purchased by Sydney University.

During the summer of 2019, Peacock exhibited with the Wilderness Collective at The Royal Geographical Society in Kensington, London. He exhibited a collection of new works which have direct links to some of the lost pathways around Sussex and his own explorations with a metal detector which he uses to locate a variety of metals beneath the earth. During the show, Peacock gave talks and demonstrations on discriminating metals to audiences at the Geographical Society and how this process influences his work.

2020 will see a new solo show taking place at Kahn Gallery in London. Titled “Tide” The work will focus on the patterns and movements of the oceans as well as looking at coastal paths across the South Coast. This will be Peacocks 4th major solo show in London and his first with Kahn Gallery. Geraldine Hassler, the owner of the gallery is delighted to be able to exhibit some of a new collection of Peacock’s work for this special event.
