Dear Art lover!

After the show at the Hospital club, I now have a house full of art! So I thought I would make the most of it and show it off a bit.

So drop in!
There will be mulled wine flowing and filling the air with its hypnotic flavour.
Nibbles, until all nibbled.
A few spontaneous singsongs.
Walls filled with my work
all within the comfort of my lovely little home.

All welcome.

Look forward to seeing you!

x Louise Riley

ps. there are lots of fun things to do close by also so make a day of it!:

There is The Lee Valley Icerink 10 minutes down the road.
A lovely walk can be had at Wathamstow Marshes and along the River Lee.
There is the famous Chatsworth Road Saturday Market and there is a Santas Grotto and Christmas market a short bus ride away at St John-at-Hackney Church Gardens London E5 0PD.

ps. I will be selling prints and there will be an option to buy the more major works in installments as low as £40 a month! so you could have one of my mega embroideries in your home! yahooo!

The Culmination of Creation- Last chance people!

Hey Loves!
This show is coming down on Saturday!
If you want to see it this is your last chance!
24 Endell St, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9HQ

The Triptych I created in the window over the last month, 
Spacescape, Landscape, Cellscape. 
Altogether they make up:
'A Diorama of Creation From Scale 1-∞'

I feel quite emotional seeing them altogether, it has been quite the sewing marathon and stretching them up for the last part of the exhibition where the are displayed as a diorama was joyful, peaceful, liberating and sad all at the same time. I feel most drawn to the mountain, I just want to dive in that lake, feel the cool slippery water pass over me, swim to the otherside, walk through the forest and smell that damp piney smell and then climb that mountain. I want in. 
They are each 94" x 72", 
they can collaborate with the world and eachother, with light and shadow. 
When I lay the landscape over the spacescape it is instantly a nightscape:


Below are the pieces in the other windows, you can see the difference by night and by day, 
ever evolving in a slightly wonky cycle.

This is the best shot I got by night, there will be better ones when I take it all out, the window is so reflective it is challenging to photograph. 

 Over and out. xx
