Riley is an American & Australian artist, living in Austin, Texas, who joined us here at the Fish Factory for the month of July. Coming from a multi-national background has formed an integral part of her life and influence, and experiences of culture in many countries, across continents, has fed into her work and travel as an artist and photographer. These creative outlets are important in providing her with a tool for both expression, and also in documenting and working through problems or situations.
Here at the Fish Factory, Riley focused on a ongoing body of work, capturing ethereal and minimal landscapes, finding much inspiration from the changing weather and surroundings in the fjord. This series is also driven by personal instinct, forming a soothing working process, and an organic outcome.

Aside from this lens-based body of work, Riley has created a video collaboration with artist in residency, Emma Johnson, and has also spent time developing an ongoing series of short stories, inspired by geometric shapes. A reading from story, Circles, can be viewed below in the interview video about her stay.
