Erin Riley

Erin Riley

Erin M. Riley is a Brooklyn artist specialized in weaving tapestries. Her works, made on a floor loom with hand dyed wool, are far from conventional, using images from the Internet that depict honest and feminist femininity: from Plan B to tampons to nude selfies. She began to use found photographs, also personal images. The choice of her medium is entwined within the personal: weaving is an intimate, solitary experience that leads to contemplation.
