‘Crystal Gregory: Shapes Of Stillness And Force’

Kentuckian Crystal Gregory’s new solo exhibition at Moremen Gallery is based on a contradiction. She takes self-made textiles — a craft that creates soft and fluid fabrics — and couples them with sturdy, hard concrete. The result is a sculpture that uses “materials to perform formal gestures that are both authentic to their function and frustrate their use,” said Gregory. “I found a wonderful tension between building materials like concrete and the structural patterns of cloth.” A catalog of the show is available online.
