Teja Krasek

Freelance artist
Ljubljana, Slovenia

Krasek’s theoretical, as well as practical, work is especially focused on symmetry as a linking concept between art and science, on filling a plane with geometrical shapes, especially those constituting Penrose tilings (rhombs, kites, and darts). The author's interest is focused on the shapes' inner relations, on the relations between the shapes and between them and a regular pentagon. The artworks among others illustrate certain properties, such as golden mean relations, selfsimilarity, fivefold symmetry, Fibonacci sequence, inward infinity, and perceptual ambiguity… Krasek’s work concentrates on melding art, science, mathematics and technology. She employs contemporary computer technology as well as classical painting techniques. Her artworks and articles are exhibited and published internationally. Krasek’s artworks are among the winners of the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th International NanoArt Online Competition.

9 Lucky Stars

The artwork depicts an arrangement of 9 pentagonal stars at different size scales as found in a thick Penrose rhomb

(cut in half and placed horizontally). We observe a richness of golden mean relations and self-similarity. The fractal pattern of the texture corresponds to the fractal nature of the geometrical structure.
