Daisy St Sauveur

Painter and Printmaker

Daisy St. Sauveur is a printmaker and painter. She graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA. She works in print to recontextualize tradition in an era of technology and immediate gratification and wants to breathe new life into a process that is typically overlooked by the new generation. She plays with bright colors and recognizable symbols to make her work more accessible to those who are not typically interested in art. Her work is inspired by American pop culture, underrepresented areas, and the 2000s. Her art is a reflection of what St. Sauveur wants her life to look like: unpredictable, intense, and memorable.

 

Daisy St. Sauveur works in screenprint and etching to decontextualize a traditional medium into our technology-based society that is keen on receiving immediate gratification. She utilizes bright colors, abstraction, and recognizable symbols based on American pop culture and the 2000s. As an artist born into the first year of Generation Z, she wants her art to be extreme, intense, and memorable. St. Sauveur’s logo is representative of things that come and go quickly; the “ST” symbol engulfed by the recognizable Beanie Babies™ logo is a reminder of fads that come and go with haste. A collection of hundreds of items, tossed out with the introduction of the next trend in sight. However, the things that define Daisy’s generation- pop culture, bright colors, technology, and partying—are, in fact, not fads but instead important concepts that continue to evolve in life today. St. Sauveur’s artwork poses the question: As we near a new decade of the 2020s, how do we continue to intertwine the old with the new?
