"As a physician, Peake is well acquainted with the human body, and nowhere is this more apparent than in the “Outside the Box (OTB)” series. Peake collaborated with photographer David Lee Black and lighting engineer Gene Chambers to create “sculptural photography” composed of six-sided cubes that stand on one point. The cubes stand 8 feet high and display the same characters on each side in various states of motion. When one views the sophisticated construction created of aluminum and archival photographs, it is hard to imagine that it began with a photo shoot through a specially constructed glass floor in a 19th century post-and-beam Vermont barn.
In “Outside the Box: Irony,” a light-skinned man with a highly developed body kneels on a vivid blue surface with his right hand pressing on an iron. Facing him, with a golf club parallel to the iron, is an equally muscular dark-skinned woman. The figures are sculpturally magnificent, both nearly nude, and seen from six different views, as if suspended in a block of ice. The piece is both mysterious, provocative and aesthetically stunning in the same moment."
