From Ivester Contemporary:
“Ivester Contemporary is proud to present Bloom, Anya Molyviatis’ first solo exhibition with the gallery. Bloom is an ongoing series of three dimensional textiles that are handwoven on AVL Dobby Looms. The work uses dramatic color gradients as well as physical depth and structure to create a multi-sensory experience. Molyviatis is driven by her fascination with the relationship humanity holds with its natural and artificial environment. These meditative textiles are created for interior, built spaces, but are designed to reengage their viewer’s with the natural world through an optimistic blend of art and science in the form of hand dyed fabrics and the ancient craft of weaving.
Anya Molyviatis (b.1994) sculpts visual and tactile landscapes by unifying her love for fibers and design. With color gradients, weaving structures, and materiality, she shapes space into one with depth and motion. Seeking answers to our questions of well-being by the power of interconnection. Born in Geneva, Switzerland, Anya has spent her life traversing urban and wild landscapes throughout Europe and North America. After graduating from Aiglon College in 2013, she moved to the United States to study sustainable architecture in California. During her studies she completed a permaculture design course, opening her eyes to the potential of natural systems as well as textile properties. Entranced to learn more about materiality, she moved to New Mexico to apprentice with a master weaver and subsequently earned her BFA in Fibers at the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2021.”
