Historical Context:
Through the use of glossy, seemingly still wet layers of paint, artist Daisy Mitchell creates paintings that beg to be touched to really be experienced. Exploring seduction through abstract forms, Mitchell plays with ideas of intimate touch through her use of lustrous and smooth resin poured onto a canvas. Her choices in color and techniques, such as the areas where paint splatters and breaks up, plays even more with the senses. The organic shapes evoke conceptual images of movement and a luscious abstraction of the human body. Daisy Mitchell was represented by the Zolla/Lieberman Gallery in Chicago, IL which is owned by GVSU Alum, William Lieberman (‘79). The gallery historically has placed emphasis on showing women artists and other underrepresented groups.
