Michala Gyetvai Warwickshire, United Kingdom
Michala Gyetvai is more than a virtuoso technician; she is first and foremost a visionary whose work belongs to a very British Romantic landscape tradition. Her intimate contact with landscape revealed in her childhood recollections is still the driving force behind her work. She is essentially a fine artist who paints and sculpts with threads, stitching and layering her textural images.
My work explores femininity, relationships, life and death. I take inspiration from historical painters, poets and composers. I write poetry and often my poems become a title, showing a journey of thoughts, emotional autobiographical layers which become a tangible reality and are transformed into landscapes, observed directly, either by making drawings or paintings.
