DESCRIPTION

Handwoven textile cast into concrete | 2020

This series, Shapes of Stillness and Force, combines handwoven knit silk and cotton textiles with cast pewter, which is then embedded in concrete. Gregory’s use of knit textiles (versus woven) transforms a single, delicate thread into a semi two-dimensional plane wherein each loop depends on the stability of those that surround it to create a strong and sturdy, yet pliable and flexible, textile. Once the knit is complete, she pours molten pewter through the fabric, where it takes the form of its surroundings. As the heated metal alloy meanders through the individual loops of the knit cloth, it cools, hardens, and provokes the knit to become inflexible. Gregory furthers this transformation of the fabric by embedding it into weighty concrete, solidifying its stillness and permanence.
