Kent, UK, 1993

Daisy Parris is a painter of psychological space. Direct text-based works and abstract paintings are made up of a vernacular that has developed through experience, relationships and through the depths and the peaks of her human existence thus far. She brings intimacy, insight and integrity to her paintings with great psychological and emotional force. Her work is imbued with the sensitivity of one who feels everything, taking us through unflinching narratives and moments of reflection and tenderness. An ode to human existence, her work is sometimes silent, sometimes savage, with paintings that construct self portraits of personal battles and triumphs in a fast moving yet contemplative assault on the canvas.

Daisy Parris (b. 1993, Kent, UK) lives and works in London, UK. She holds BA (Hons) Fine Art from Goldsmiths University, London. Recent exhibitions include Star-Studded Canopy, Sim Smith, London, UK (solo), Talk Like Strangers, with Nico Stone, Sebastian Helling and Jesse Littlefield, Part 2 Gallery, Oakland, California, What Kind Of Spirit Is This?, Sim Smith, London, UK and Poem, Las Palmas Project, Lisbon.
