Winter Tree, Blue

by Georgia Peskett

My work focuses on the everyday details within the urban landscape.
Inspired by the journeys I take with my camera, I attempt to capture the essence of a place or a moment in time.
Experimenting with digital media is part of the process before the painting stage. Blurring of images to create a sense of fleeting moments.

Influences include Peter Doig, Frances Bacon and Gerhard Richter.

 Like an alchemist in the city, Georgia Peskett takes the seemingly commonplace and transforms it into the visionary. Reminiscent of American Master Edward Hopper, Peskett's sun-drenched architectural facades become the compositional back-drop to a fusion of temporal occurrences...Joe La Placa
