Daisy Iles (she/her)
I make work to communicate my experiences. I work from memory and from observation. Drawing is at the core of my practice. I use it as a tool to capture moments through colour, form and texture. In my work I hope to communicate the materiality of things and my enjoyment in them. I draw with collage. I paint from drawings. Torn isolated shapes and their edges play an important role in my paintings, they create a collage like aesthetic. My work is honest and communicates a joy in ordinariness. I am interested in the process of abstraction. The abstract represents my experience. My experiences at this time are repetitive, and I like communicating this repetition in my work.
