Graphic Color, Cochineal 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.

“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.”
