Collection: Urban Nature
Nov 20, 2023

Wallcovering company Wolf-Gordon has paired up with textile artist Raylene Marasco to introduce two new wallcovering designs to their digital Curated Collection: Gossamer and City Lace. Based on Marasco's childhood in rural Pennsylvania and adult life in New York City, the two patterns blend soft natural surroundings with vibrant cityscapes.
The patterns incorporate fields of wildflowers that are both occluded and illuminated at turns by city lights and asphalt. As additions to the Curated Collection, both Gossamer and City Lace are available for digital printing on a variety of Wolf-Gordon substrates, including PVC-free wallcovering.
Gossamer is a dreamlike pattern which represents the artist’s experience of moving from rural Pennsylvania to New York City. The pattern features images of nature with the city superimposed in a style evocative of double-exposed photography.
City Lace features a field of Queen Anne’s Lace and abstracted urban images that create a colorful mashup of the natural world and the built environment.
