Anonymous asked: do you and your boyfriend have a special song?


A stove is a stove no matter where you go
A patty is a patty, that’s what I say
A grill is a grill, this is surely so
And fries should be fries, either way

But this grill is not a home
This is not the stove I know
I would trade it all away
If you’d come back to stay

This kitchens not the same without you
It’s just a greasy spoon
(Just a greasy spoon)
Without you

-This Grill Is Not A Home from Spongebob Squarepants

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.

Very Cool Chick!
