Orchestrated Misbehavior stems from Ms. Riccardelli's penchant for carefully arranging her pictorial components into fanciful tableaux vivants. Born in Germany, this self-described "army brat" spent most of her formative years transferring between her father's multiple postings throughout the U.S. On the long car rides spent driving from one "home" to another "home", she passed time by gazing at the landscape whirring by, imagining herself as a princess, or a damsel imbued with magical powers. With a self-described "fondness for the absurd", Ms. Riccardelli now brings these daydreams to reality by inserting herself into engaging juxtapositions that simultaneously reflect her dark humor and romantic aesthetic.
