Daisy Madden-Wells

Daisy Madden-Wells is a multidisciplinary artist and musician from South London. She studied Fine Art Drawing at Camberwell College of Arts, before completing the Masters of Artistic Research at The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, graduating in 2019. She remains living and working, and living and working, in the Hague.

Her practice stems from a deep fascination with the language of decorative symbolism, specifically the bestial. The animal character becomes a linguistic character, or glyph that can be used to compose new meanings and possibilities, becoming a proxy for something we ourselves cannot utter.

She is currently knee-deep in paper mache  — the material of recreation, simulacra, the ‘as if’ and the ‘almost.’
