About Georgia Peskett
I am interested primarily in unremarkable subject matter, exploring elements often overlooked within the urban landscape. Subjects selected from my photographs become significant within the work. Remembered locations are often referenced as subject and influence. The materials I use for this vary, from mixed mediums on prepared paper boards and linen to the more traditional methods of Intaglio printing.
