Eric-Paul Riege

Eric-Paul Riege is a weaver and fiber artist finding presence in his mind, body, and beliefs through collage, durational performance, installation, woven sculpture, and wearable art. For Riege his weavings pay homage and link him to generations of weavers in his family and exist as living things that aid him in generating sanctuary spaces of welcome. His work is a celebration and study and being of Hózhó--Diné philosophy that encompasses beauty, balance, goodness, and harmony in all things physical, mental, and spiritual and its bearing on everyday experience. Riege uses myth and storytelling to propose homes; spaces of welcome and acceptance and sharing.
