WBEG Monthly Meeting 

Thursday 9 November 7.00pm - 9.00pm

Michala Gyetvai - My work
“My passion for art and textiles began early on. As a child I spent endless hours playing with threads and fibres and this intimate knowledge has subsequently influenced my choice of materials. My 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. My understanding of art is not purely the process of my individual craft, but encompasses a larger historical understanding of artists working in many mediums.”
