Georgia Peskett

Georgia’s work explores the everyday, taking inspiration from urban landscapes, commuters and streetscapes. Unusually she works with oil on silk over other surfaces such as canvas and board.

“I am drawn to paint the often overlooked details around me. Photography is essential in my work and I am never without my camera. My recent series of paintings explore the theme of the Sojourn and are made with references to the many significances of a journey, moments that are transient, small details and changes in light on a repeated journey."

I use the layered quality of oil and wax over silk on canvas to convey a transparency that brings a translucency to the colours.”

Georgia began painting during a three year apprenticeship in New York in 1985, following her formal art training at Epsom School of Art. Her works are held in public, private and corporate collections across the globe. She currently lives and works in Derbyshire.
