Feels Like Forever Ago New work by Daisy Parris & Laurie Vincent - Rochester Art Gallery and Craft Case

Daisy Parris and Laurie Vincent met while studying at UCA Rochester in 2010 and went on to share a studio five years later, they have maintained a regular collaborative relationship since. Daisy is now a full time artist exhibiting internationally, and Laurie is an artist and one half of punk duo Slaves. Feels Like Forever Ago shows some of the artistic duo’s early collaborative work, which was rooted in a post-punk iconographical collage style, commenting on the social and cultural fabric of the world around them. Alongside this we are showing a new body of work made especially for this exhibition, where the pair worked in tandem to locate a mutual voice that speaks a singular artistic language. The newer work heralds a more refined approach, working from preparatory drawings
and created in series; where everything is kept in a state of flux between chaos and order through careful use of pattern and iconography. Ordered by the use of repetition, while always threatening to slip into chaos due to the hand drawn nature of the patterns, this balancing act is what gives the work its palpable energy.
The comforting pastel shades are a pull to the push of the iconographic symbols like smashed glass and jagged cracks; warning of danger if one should enter this room of the mind. Where the earlier paintings of this duo showed evidence of each player’s hand, this new body of work feels as though from a singular mind; it is difficult to know where one ends and the other begins. And that is the mark of a great collaboration.
Invitation - Meet the artists at the opening reception of Feels Like Forever Ago on Thu, 13 Dec, 6.30-9pm, no need to book, free, all welcome. The new visitor centre Explore Life Cafe will be open throughout the evening.
