Tsolis, Yola Maria

Textile, photography, sculpture, installation

Born 1981, Yola Maria Tsolis is currently working in Oslo. Tsolis has a master’s degree in visual art from the Oslo Academy of the Arts.

Her works explore the breach between space and image. By merging genres like photography, sculpture and architecture, she examines the notion of one point perspective. Her works are often in-situ constructions, creating a setting for the act of observation itself.

Influenced by nature, geometrics and grids her work with textile tessellations
and photo collages engage a method of self-organizing structures.
