Handwoven textile cast into concrete | 2019
In the new stunning series of handwoven works cast in concrete, Crystal Gregory continues to use cloth construction as a fundamental center, drawing a clear connection between the lines of thread laid perpendicularly through a warp and the construction of architectural spaces. In a meditation on privacy, the works use mediums that define space and create shelter—although it’s only the textile that has the advantage of flexibility, with the ability to fold, drape, move, and change to its surroundings. The resulting series sparks conversation on the parameters of weaving and architecture—their process, their utility, and their grid. They are sturdy and stable but at the same time malleable and absorbent.

“I am constantly responding to what was woven in the foot before, adding color and texture and pattern-finding a rhythm, losing a rhythm and responding.”
