Crystal Gregory

Graphic Color, Madder 4

  • 20 x 16 inches | Original Work

DESCRIPTION

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.

AUTHENTICATION

Signed by artist.

The work comes with a Certification of Authenticity signed by the Co-Founder of Tappan.

“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.”
