Where do selfies and hand woven tapestries meet? In the person of Philadelphia based artist Erin M. Riley. Combining one of the oldest mediums of representation with the latest, Riley reproduces the pictures she takes of otherwise sordid, furtive moments, from a vibrator lying on the floor of her room to a nude taken in a bathroom mirror, and recreates them on a loom as a process of meditation and consideration. The result? Something altogether uncanny, fascinating, and enthralling. Opening reception March 15th, 6-9 PM.
