Elizabeth Riley’s multimedia work has always been, for me, adventurous and daring. She puts together disparate elements from architecture, the urban environment and abstract forms, occasionally throwing into the mix, figures and objects.  It is free-wheeling, with a fractured sense of space, time, and reality.  

The digital collage I now have in my collection was derived and shown at her recent installation exhibited at Storefront Bushwick in Brooklyn, NYC.  The physical installation, “Tabletop Cityscape” was created using inkjet-printed video stills, embedded video and found wood. One video was intimately embedded in a 6″ hole and while another projected a video of the Green Chair 2, conveying both private and public modes of experiencing a city.  It was so active and full of life.

My print, made from video stills and ipad photos, is called “Moving/Still #8.  It is from a series of 12 digital prints. Each are inkjet printed on archival paper, 11 x 8.5” in an edition 200.They are quite inexpensive. I loved mine because of the colors, references to origami and that weird hairy plant in the lower left.  The quality is wonderful.
