Occupying a space somewhere between reality and illusion, Daisy Sheff’s (b. 1996 in Greenbrae, CA) paintings and sculptures entertain whimsical narratives that approach the absurd, in works that simultaneously embrace personal narrative, theatre, and the folkloric. Her newest pieces bring together elements of her domestic world including pets, architecture, flora and found material. As the artist notes, “My paintings offer glimpses into detailed, private narratives. The paintings share the arbitrary laws of fairytales – a world outside of everyday existence with a logic all its own. They are at once sincere and absurd. All these images recall pieces of stories, which I reconfigure, in a search for something essential to emerge.”

Based in Los Angeles, Sheff received her BFA from UCLA in 2018. Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at C L E A R I N G, Los Angeles; Ratio 3, San Francisco; South Willard, Los Angeles; and White Columns, New York. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at C L E A R I N G New York; Ratio 3 DTLA, Los Angeles; Parker Gallery, Los Angeles; Grimm Gallery, New York; and February, Austin. Daisy Sheff’s work belongs to the collections of the de Young Museum, San Francisco; The Bunker Artspace, West Palm Beach; the Rachofsky Collection, Dallas; Aïshti Foundation, Beirut; and Igal Ahouvi Art Collection, Tel Aviv.
