The Tapestries of Jon Eric Riis

Contemporary tapestry artist Jon Eric Riis is internationally acclaimed for his opulent work in woven silk and metallic thread, often embellished with pearls, gemstone beads, and crystals.

Art history, religion, non-western cultures, and topical issues serve as sources of inspiration for his handwoven narratives that strike a balance between social commentary and virtuoso craftsmanship. The over 60 works on view include large-scale mythological tapestry panels, archetypal coat and robe forms that evoke ceremonial vestments, and experimental anatomical tapestry strips that reflect upon the corporeality of our existence.
