Visiting Artist Colloquium: Erin M. Riley

September 9, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Erin M. Riley is a fiber artist who makes powerful large-scale tapestries using a centuries-old hand-weaving process with hand-dyed wool on a floor loom and depicting the complex spectrum of female sexuality–from excitement and fear to pleasure and pain. Derived from personal photography, found photographs sourced from the internet, and still lifes, Riley’s imagery explores the innate difficulty of womanhood, objectification of the female body, and traumas both large and small that weigh on the search for self-identity.
