Artist, Erin M Riley’s weaved portraits of Selfies are generally a window into a newer expression of female identity – grappling with issues on how women perceive themselves and how we want others to see us. Her new solo show Crimson Landslide at Philadelphia Gallery, Space 1026 definitely shows off the continued mastery of her craft – the detailing on her pieces always becoming more complex. Though Crimson’s imagery might make some uncomfortable, peering into a more personal dialogue on the habits, objects of regimen, necessities and stresses of women’s everyday lives – it’s a truer sense of the things we can’t control via our smartphone cameras.
