A rare glimpse of exclusive textile designers at Cristina Grajales Gallery
The practice of weaving and creating textiles is at best one meticulously planned down to the color, shape, and pattern and better yet something that evolves as the designer weaves and bends the piece to meet the reality of its creator's dreams. This relation between organic and inorganic forms of control when designing textiles, breeds the most beautiful results. Varying combinations of planning and improvisation does not guarantee successful textiles but carries the potential, when navigated by a master, to produce works under the most exceptional and extraordinary circumstances. Cristina Grajales Gallery has the pleasure of presenting designers on both the median and polar sides of the meticulous-reactionary-spectrum. Our designers vary in strategy and even more so in medium, from Hechizoo who weaves in metals and polymers, Madeline Weinrib who takes traditional methods to whole new painterly level, Betil Dagdelin who builds iron frames of chairs and furniture and uses them as a loom, to The Doug and Mike Starn who use bamboo and rope to weave dwellings, furniture and more. Join us in celebrating the varying manifestations of textiles and the masters who create them.
