Textile artist Erin M Riley weaves internet-native images of women in various states of undress, presenting themselves in sexualized display, and in the context of drug and alcohol use.
“My work is the culmination of research into addiction, sexual experimentation, popular internet culture, the effects of single parent households, socio-economic status," she says. The pieces shown here incorporate a variety of materials: hand-dyed wool, cotton, nylon, and other materials.
"I am drawn to the images taken for private exchanges that become littered on the internet," says Riley. "I am using my own images that I have sent to lovers as well as the objects that I have formed psychological attachments to, objects that have impacted people’s lives, displays of arrests, deaths, addictions.”
Here's a photo-essay of the artist in her studio. Below, a video interview.
