> DESCRIPTION

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.
