Daisy Richardson’s work approaches ideas of the domestic and the majestic, the meeting point between interior and exterior, time, space, the unknown, the formation of the earth and our place within it. Her work is an attempt to understand these subjects. She works in drawing, painting, sculpture and collage. Within her sculptural work, she often uses found objects which she surrounds with constructed natural substances representing forms such as quartz or sandstone. With these works she is trying to bring together domestic interior objects with the exterior. In the case of Widmanstätten Chair which combines a photographed meteorite surface with a found chair, the intention was to bring space into the domestic domain, and create something approachable that still maintains its roots in deep time and space.
