Erin Riley: Undo
October 3 to November 3, 2013 Artist Reception: Thurs, October 3, 6:30-8 pm
Lecture in the Annex Gallery during the reception.
"Erin Riley can be described as a visual reporter for her generation. She observes her world and contemporary culture through social media, gathers images from the internet and translates them into tapestries that are often tragic, provocative, and certainly disturbing. Much of her subject matter has to do with young women involved with drugs, drunkenness, and sexual encounters. She is interested in the reasons behind the behavior as much as in the actions themselves. The ideas of need, love, longing and despair are all visible in this work.", this excerpt was written by
Susan Iverson, curator for Public/Private Moments
