Erin M. Riley

Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco is currently showing a wide variety of new works from international artists with their “Summer Group Show”. As with FWMOA’s “Invisible College” exhibition, previewed earlier, the show packs in countless styles and mediums from familiar rising stars in New Contemporary. This includes artists appearing in our current issue like Erin M. Riley, Erik Jones (HF Vol. 27 cover artist), Brett Amory (HF Vol. 20), Jessica Hess (HF Vol. 21), Nychos (HF Vol. 28), Shawn Huckins (HF Vol. 32), Tracey Snelling (HF Vol. 35), and more. The show is unapologetically eclectic. If there is any common thread, it is that many offer depictions of modern urban life or credit it to their creative upbringing, as with the number of muralists on exhibit. Erin M. Riley is certainly one of them, representing the Instagram generation. Focused on contemporary trends, her titular piece “Summer,” a hand woven tapestry, depicts one of her signature taboo “selfie” images. We have also seen a rise in the popularity of miniature works, such as Drew Leshko’s small scaled but accurately crafted buildings, objects, and machinery and Lucien Shapiro’s ornately decorated “growths” on display. These are dwarfed even more in comparison to somebody like Joel Daniel Phillips, with his large scale drawing of “Ben”, an urban dweller. Take a look at these and more works from “Summer Group Show” below, now on view through July 25th.
