WAXHAW, NC – Zsuzsanna Morvay only began creating textile artwork one year ago, and she’s already amassed a considerable collection that can now be seen at Eight Legs Gallery in Waxhaw.

After visiting a longtime friend and artist in Hungary, Morvay was taught how to assemble fibers and threads from sources like fish netting, wine bottles, resin, appliances from home, and articles of clothing, and she fell in love with the process.  A dream of hers to learn the craft for the last ten years, she has been able to devote the little time she has into creating artwork.  A full-time nurse, she plans on continuing this her passion for art well into retirement.  She says it has taught her that “simple things can be made beautiful.”  In the end, her goal is to bring a smile to viewers of her work.

Morvay plans on teaching classes in the near future to share her love for the art form.  She finds it relaxing as she is able to use her imagination and create a piece of art organically.  If she sees a thread or ribbon or hat lying nearby, she may be inspired to use the material to tell a new story through an image.  She does not always know in what direction she is heading with the art, but she is willing to give herself permission to be okay with learning in the middle of making.  Her art is an amalgamation of personal items from her own life that she connects to make it more personal to her and, therefore, more meaningful in its message.  “You can use anything in your home,” she says.  Glass, buttons, quilts, and ceremonial banners are just a few items that can be woven into the tapestry or imagination made physical.
