Living between the South Downs and Sussex coastline, Daizi-May takes inspiration from the ever-changing landscape around her. Her work is derived from memory which enables her to work freely whilst exploring the relationship between colour, form, light and space. Using a pallet knife she intuitively layers oil paint, removing and reap-plying until the piece organically evolves. Whilst elements are smooth and harmonious, others are expressive and textural. Her colourful landscapes behold a sense of fantasy and familiarity, evoking feelings of escape, serenity and distance.
“ I turn to nature to ground myself, pause, and reflect. I surrender to the vastness and find comfort in the feeling of appreciation it stirs in me. Throughout my process I return to these moments, reimagining them as I work.”
