Crimson Landslide // Erin M Riley
Opening Reception: First Friday February 7th 7-10pm
February 7th -21st, 2014 at Space 1026
Space 1026 is pleased to present Crimson Landslide, a solo exhibition by Erin M Riley of wool and cotton pieces based on the objects and ephemera of our daily lives. While widely known for her pieces depicting nude or scantily clad young women, her objects series is rarely shown as a collection. Exhibiting these pieces side by side allows the work to generate an underlying narrative. So much of one’s interactions are littered with tools, notions, toiletries, covered in text instructions, ingredients, many with salacious implications if found. Erin depicts the implements of drug use, as well as and detritus of female identity, beauty regimens, condoms, birth control pills, plan B packs, etc. These objects are presented on a simple background woven by hand in high detail, highlighting the complexities of small and sometimes meaningless things. Her work is based off of found photographs culled from the internet as well as images she has collected from her own life as a way to allow a view into the most common of private habits. These pieces allow the audience to see objects and ephemera from the point of view of many young men and women at this specific time in their lives.
Erin M Riley is a Brooklyn, NY based artist. She received her MFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA and her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Her work is published in the February 2014 issue of Juxtapoz magazine, the Annual 2013 by It’s Nice That, and will be in the forthcoming #110 Northeast issue of New American Painting. Her work has been exhibited internationally and nationally, and she has been an artist in residence at the MacDowell Colony, Vermont Studio Center as well Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts.
