Handwoven textile cast into concrete | 2019

Gregory’s work uses cloth construction as a fundamental center, a place to start from, and move back to. With her background in weaving, she sees herself as a builder, drawing a clear connection between the lines of thread laid perpendicularly through a warp and the construction of architectural spaces.


The work takes shape through a pallet of building materials, either paired with or mimicking handmade textiles exploring the tension between building materials like concrete, metal, drywall or glass and the structural patterns of cloth. By pairing these seemingly opposite worlds together, the artist inverts material stereotypes, using the ‘delicate’ material to exhibit strength and exposing the ‘structural’ materials’ instabilities. These gestures allow for a reinterpretation of material identities and the viewer is left to confront their understanding of these everyday utilities.
