I think when you spend so much time combing through sites, looking for work to write posts about, you begin to forget how important medium is to a person's body of work. Erin Riley's hand-woven tapestries are great examples of how a piece's physical "stuff" can be pivotal in telling it's story. Although, to be honest, I've haven't seen Erin's tapestries in person, but her work bears a quirkiness and palpable quality that shines through print and pixels.
Erin currently works out of Philadelphia. Lately, she's been working from cellphone video stills of traffic accidents. This may be a personal sentiment, but when paired with her warmer, more domestic "snap-shot" work, I think it really encapsulates the whole gamut of feelings associated with memory and growing up - a strong message of warmth and distance. Anyway, Erin tells me she hasn't got anything lined up show-wise for the immediate future, but we'll be keeping an eye out for her. You should too, pleasethanks.
