Georgia Peskett

November 14, 2015

Georgia Peskett is a British painter and printmaker, who works in oil on linen and Intaglio printmaking. She was born in 1965, into a family of artists. Growing up, she was surrounded by bohemians and eccentric figures.

The artist is interested in the landscapes, both of the urban environment and the natural landscapes. She explores how humans exist within a landscape, presenting mundane and ordinary scenes from life in a dynamic and vibrant manner. The urban landscapes in her works are inspired by the places she visited, such as San Francisco, New York and London. Some of her series focus on the concepts of hope and superstition, the others on transient moments and female identity.
