Letters From Home will bring together the first
major body of work to show Stateside from Australian artist Lilly Piri. Her
works are so soft in scope that they really have to be seen in person to truly
appreciate the delicate nature with which she creates her works. In almost
every work there is a references to long distance relationships, more often
than not through strings of air mail letters connecting her subjects to one
another. For this special show she has created a number of small paintings on
thin balsa wood that capture these envelops perfectly. Each envelope will hang
and connect each of her works and will be exclusive to this site specific
installation. With each purchase of an original work, our patrons will also get
to choose one of the hand-painted letters as an added bonus, making this a very
special exhibition indeed.
Lilly Piri was born on the east coast of
Australia in 1985 and has lived there ever since. Currently she is planning to
move to Germany to be with her new husband and fellow artist Heiko Windisch.
Piri studied with the Arts Academy in Brisbane.
Piri draws & paints with acrylics, oils, watercolor, but her favorite &
most employed medium is color pencil. Her work has been published in DPI, Black
+ White, Empty, Frankie, Hotpress, Marmalade, Voiceworks, Harper's Bazaar,
Semi-Permanent books, Curvy books, Faest and Ruby Mag and her list of
illustration clients include the Yes Men and Saatchi & Saatchi.
