Over a week has past since the opening of Stellify, and so far the show has been great. Thank you to those who attended the opening reception and made it such a fun time! I am honored to have this opportunity to share my work with you and others in NYC. To see some photos of the installation, visit Stellify’s showpage on the Dillon Gallery website: http://www.dillongallery.com/exhibitions/current/Leah-Yerpe—Stellify/#0

The exhibition will be up until February 11, so there is still plenty of time to check it out.
In the meantime, I am back in the studio making the first new works of 2014. So stay tuned!

This is a time-lapse video shot as I worked on my drawing Phoenicis. The camera snapped a photo every 15 minutes to capture my process of creation. Enjoy!
Many thanks to photographer Jonathan Auch for creating this video.
