Lily Arnold

*1999 in Karlsruhe, Germany

The series “Perfect Places” is based on personal memories of the perfect places of a summer.

In her idiosyncratic mixed works of oil painting, classical embroidery and collaged elements, the artist was inspired by the imagery of medieval millefleurs tapestries from the Musée national du Moyen Âge in Paris – works overloaded with flowers and decor that depict everyday scenes of the rich and noble: walks , baths, music and poetry.

Lily Arnold replaces the upper class of society with the lifestyle of the younger generation. Young adults who, especially after the restrictions of previous years, want to go out and enjoy life – in all its overloaded glory.
