Sam Peacock uses a mix of recycled metals and industrial paints to create landscape pieces. “I gorge on the speed and power of mark making, the rawness and the ferocity of paint; how brush marks shift, scrape and overlap to build up structures and forms which compel me to paint, I look incisively for the conversation within the form to build this up on the canvas as the work evolves”. Peacock describes the process as \"a love of the country and how nature can take back what it wants when it wants. A use of the primitivism within combined with a eye towards the coast. Steel ports, industry, sugar cane slavery. Materials ever evolving like our city itself. The heat of an open fire, the chemical compounds intrusive with raw colour. Steel glimmering through the conversation which has taken place in front of you. Like entering the room after an argument. Energies still screaming out. The fire\'s embers pass and burn into the night. The sea calms once more. The city\'s heart beats continual.\"

The works concern themselves primarily with the conversation between the organic and the industrial although an absence of structure is prevalent. Each piece from the series echoes back to a time before neglect and decay appeared. The main influence comes from travel, essentially from around Australasia, where an immense build up of Iron ore is exposed from mining to extreme elements such as rain and fire, hence the process used. The ideas are also absorbed from forgotten places on our own shores where natural elements collide with the built environment.
