Brooklyn based artist Erin M. Riley’s woven tapestries are created on a loom using traditional techniques, her work features explicit in-your-face imagery that is beautiful and at times difficult to look at. Her tapestries take a screenshot of modern life, especially that of women, focusing on difficult images of drug addition, sex acts, violence, trauma, based on what she finds online and in her personal life.
