About Richard Peacock

Richard Peacock get lostwebI am a printmaker, working from studios in North London, making screenprints (on a press) and woodcuts (hand-printed with the aid of a spoon). My prints are always in small editions. My work combines geometric abstraction and pop art, with a love of colour and rhythm. For my screen prints I often make the stencil from pieces of commercial packaging, cardboard boxed carefully opened out and folded flat. This shape is then repeated in overlapping patterns. I sometimes incorporate words into my prints in poster-like images, relating to places I have visited or sources of inspiration.
