When the artist Sam Peacock heard that his hometown, Rugby, was being marked as a potential fracking site, he did everything he could to learn about hydraulic fracturing - and the potential damage it could do to the place where he grew up.
Now based in south London, the painter wanted to mimic the destructive pressure that comes with the volatile reaction of water, sand and chemicals which occurs during fracking. What he achieved was a series of gnarled, lurid images titled Fractured. they act as explicit symbols of the more attritional environmental damage that the process could cause.
Fractured runs from 5-11 March at the Curious Duke Gallery. For more info head to the website.
