Milli Jannides (1986) graduated from the Elam School of Fine Arts in 2009. She has studied at Glasgow School of Art (2007), Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (2010), and in 2013 completed her MFA at Royal College of the Arts in London (where she is currently based). Recent exhibitions include: Method & Gesture, Utopian Slumps, Melbourne (2013); Part Two Soft Eyes, TCB, Melbourne (2013); Hermes’ lack of words, Artspace, Auckland (2013); and Liste Art Fair, Basel (2013). As the light dips is Jannides second solo exhibition at Hopkinson Mossman, preceded by Eyelash Gnawing in 2012.
Inspired in part by literature, and the poetic power of words to evoke sensations, Jannides paintings are portals to psychological terrains.
