Georgina Berens lives and works in Cape Town and is the manager of South Atlantic Press printmaking studio in Woodstock which she established in 2018. Georgina has worked in various galleries, assisted artists, worked with school and university students and at multiple printmaking studios.
She is most drawn to stone lithography which she specialised in while studying for her BA (Fine Arts) at the University of Cape Town where she was awarded the Matthew Somers Memorial prize and placed on the Dean’s Merit List. She has a fine appreciation for lithography’s technical challenges, its tactile elements of stone, grease, and water, and how this ancient printmaking technique complements her contemporary passion for drawing. The sensitive mark-making qualities of line and tone specific to the lithographic technique are revealed in Georgina’s prints. These frequently explore indefinable spaces and the sense of comfortable yet temporary dwellings through her eerie use of light, shadow, and lovingly drawn everyday objects.
