Daisy St Sauveur
Painter and Printmaker
Daisy St. Sauveur is a printmaker and painter living in Boston, Massachusetts. In 2019, Daisy graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a BFA in Fine Art and a focus in printmaking. She works with various media to contextualize tradition in an era of consumerism. Her work is inspired by liminality, transitional spaces, and the digital age.
St. Sauveur works in acrylic, graphite, screenprint, and oil pastel to create impulsive, layered, and dissociative imagery. As an artist born into the first year of Generation Z, her art draws inspiration from trends that replace the security of the human connection. Fascinated with foggy memories of her own childhood, Daisy tries to piece together vague shapes and symbols from liminal spaces and forgotten periods of time. St. Sauveur's work explores the time between the ‘what was’ and the ‘next.’ It is a place of transition, a season of waiting, and a lifetime of not knowing what lays ahead. The work doesn't adhere to logic or reason and lies in a plane between the familiar and the completely unknown.
The recognizable symbols in Daisy's work combine this sense of helplessness and material comfort in an image-obsessed world. The motifs that define Daisy’s generation- nostalgia for technology, alienation from the self, and extroverted facades— are 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 find ourselves amongst the chaos of disassociation and digital discomfort?
