Graphic Color, Cochineal and Madder 1
Digitally woven cotton, cast in plaster | 2021
For her new series, artist Crystal Gregory has created colorful weavings using natural dyed cotton. In Graphic Color, Gregory extends her practice of contrasting the fluidity of hand-woven textiles with an unbending material such as concrete—this time working with a new technology. The series juxtaposes the slow, organic quality of natural dye with the graphic weave structures produced on the digital jacquard loom. The resulting material is then cast in an interior plaster of bright white, allowing both the color and the image to pop.

Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
“My work, I believe, lives in a realm of universal experiences because of the materials I choose. I hope to draw attention to that by representing them to the viewer in an unfamiliar way, allowing for a re-recognition whatever that means to the individual.”
Crystal Gregory's sculptures combine the permanence of concrete with the fluidity of hand-woven textiles.
