Daisy Clarke, a graduate of Royal College of Art and Camberwell College of Art, received an RCA travel scholarship to Venice in 2010 and was the winner of the Barbican Art Trust Open in London that same year. Today, the artist lives and works in London. Daisy’s paintings have an otherworldly aura, and are instilled with a sense of magical serenity that borders on the surreal. Her individual symbol language creates a strange, unsettling atmosphere where fragile women and animals inhabit a melancholic landscape. In commenting on her own work, the artist declares her paintings have “an otherworldly quality, instilled with magic and dream-like serenity. Her individual symbol language creates a strange, unsettling atmosphere where fragile women and animals inhabit a melancholic landscape.”
Often inspired by classic literature, such as Wuthering Heights, The Leopard and Great Expectations, Daisy has shown her work at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, The NY Historical Gallery, New York, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, among others. Collectors of her work include the New York Manager of J P Morgan, Hugh Grant, and Jeremy Irons.
