Michala Gyetvai is an artist based in rural Warwickshire making large painterly textile works which engage with historic, surreal and romantic approaches to experiencing the landscape.
About the artist…
Michala’s passion for art and textiles began early on. As a child she spent endless hours playing with threads and fibres and this intimate knowledge subsequently influenced her choice of materials.
Her work seeks to capture an emotive and evocative interpretation of nature which is constantly refined throughout the process of making. The passion and freedom encountered in the immediacy of sketching is developed and channelled through paintings, and then consolidated into textile pieces. Labour and repetition are central to this process and depending on the scale the finished textile can take many months to complete. Michala’s understanding of art is not purely the process of her individual craft, but encompasses a larger historical understanding of artists working in many mediums.
