Eric-Paul Riege

Eric-Paul Riege (Diné, born in 1994, Na’nízhoozhí / Gallup, USA) creates woven sculptures, wearable art and durational performances that celebrate his existence and spirituality. These works express his philosophies of sanctuary, harmony and interconnection. Also important is a Hózhó-Diné philosophy that encompasses beauty, balance and goodness in all things physical and mental and its bearing on everyday experience. Eric-Paul’s work, which he describes as being “encompassed in the threads of weaving and life,” creates an immersive and charged space influenced by his homes, ceremonies and rituals from his past, future and present selves.

Participated in the “Rabbit Hole: Pod Theory” Residency, 2020.
