Daisy Parris

New Talk Art! We meet leading British artist Daisy Parris to discuss their recent solo show 'I See You In Everyone I Love'. We discuss text, rough gestural brushstrokes, large-scale canvases and their punk aesthetic that led to painterly abstraction.


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 their human existence thus far. Parris brings intimacy, insight and integrity to their paintings with great psychological and emotional force. The 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, their 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 and holds BA (Hons) Fine Art from Goldsmiths University, London.
