Molly Kent's 'Dream Weaving' series is not just art; it's a narrative of personal and universal struggles. 

"My Art Is A Conversation About The Internal And External Conflicts We Face In The Digital Age," Says Kent.

Her works depict falling, extreme weather, and digital anxieties, connecting deeply with viewers’ subconscious fears and experiences.

The series is rich in symbolism, drawing from myths and personal trauma, while playfully incorporating digital elements like emojis and computer icons. 

This blend of traditional weaving with digital symbols reflects Kent's innovative approach to textile art, embodying her response to the increased digitalization during the COVID-19 pandemic.
