ERIN RILEY’S TABOO TAPESTRY
Philadelphia based fiber artist Erin M. Riley is tackling taboo issues with her loom. She’s capturing the issues of today’s generation with very old school traditional form of storytelling. Her threads weave together depictions of female sexuality, drug use, birth control, car crashes, selfies, among others. The results of which are breathtaking in a very perverse way - most of the images will make you feel as if you’re sneaking a peek at private photos on someones phone, the element of being privy to what’s going on behind the scene but not being talked about - and at second glance you can’t help but stare in awe at the painstaking efforts that go into her work.
Erin’s work will be showing at Philadelphia based Paradigm Gallery + Studio from August 30th - October 12th, 2013. Hope you can make it out, these tapestries are sure to stir up a dialogue.

It’s just so weird to me that there are people who have great, happy, positive, supportive relationships with their families. People actually miss their families, and regularly call or e-mail their parents, and consider siblings and cousins their best friends - or friends at all. There are people who willingly spend time with family and enjoy the experience.
ugh this is hitting me so hard

intersectional // sexuality: things that determine your sexual orientationwho you’re attracted...
things that determine your sexual orientation
things that do not determine your sexual orientation
- who you’ve fucked
- who you haven’t fucked
- what kind of sex you enjoy
- how you dress
- the porn you watch
- what you look like
- what the day of the week it is
- what you ate…

“You have 6 tattoos.
Full lips. Good, strong hands.
You have 7 freckles on your back,
they map out the big dipper.
You have a scar on your left arm
you carved in high school.
The first time you pulled off your t shirt
I traced the line with my fingers and fell in love
with your strength.
You are a hero
for living from that moment
to this one. You never need to apologize
for how you chose to survive
Your body is a map I know every inch of
and if anyone else
were to kiss me, all they would taste
is your name.”
