Jersey 

One Size Fits All

Machine-washable

Limited Edition of 25 

Produced in collaboration between Paula Crown Atelier and Christy Rilling Studio. 

This jersey gaiter provides full face and neck coverage while being lightweight and breathable for physical activity.  The design of the gaiter takes artwork from Crown’s Kinematic series, which begins from an investigation into liquid graphite and water, two materials that, like oil and water, do not mix. The poured liquid graphite flows in water creating a dynamic and ephemeral composition that is then photographed and printed. The resulting images are reminiscent of the earth’s topography and photos taken from space while also invoking the wonder of cosmology and outer space.

 

The artworks are created by the artist’s hand guiding each composition and a highly-specialized method that captures a fleeting moment of unstable materials. This methodology is brought back to life by transferring these images to silk. The fluid nature of the material and the movements of the fabric subtly mimic the ephemeral forms composed by Crown at the moment of creation. When we pause, what patterns and beauty can be revealed?
