British Canadian landscape artist Georgia Hart works exclusively with palette knives to create her signature impasto oil paintings. Thick peaks of paint incorporate another dimension into her work, starkly contrasting with her choice of delicate and pristine oil paper that purposefully frames bold and often rugged scenes. These 3D qualities allow the work to be more than a landscape painting; aiming to evoke intense emotion, while serving as a window to somewhere that is simultaneously familiar and distant.
Georgia uses painting as way to explore change in landscapes: considering how perspective, weather and seasons can create an uncontrollable, fleeting mood. She uses knives to add an expressive flair to her representational work.
Georgia often paints places that marry a feeling of home with something wild. Cornish beaches and Canadian mountain peaks are frequent subjects.
