Daisy Parris’ bold and deeply saturated brush strokes build to create paintings that exude energy and aggression. Inspired by her own experiences, they are a visceral response to everyday life, documenting gut feelings, things found on the street, thoughts and memories. Words play a vital role in her work. Parris plays with their weight and their context, often distorting their meaning, to give her paintings the feel of aggravated poetry.
