Teja Krasek

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Teja Krasek’s theoretical, and practical, work is especially focused on symmetry as a linking concept between art and science, and on filling a plane with geometrical shapes, especially those constituting Penrose tilings (rhombs, kites, and darts). The artist's interest is focused on the shapes' inner relations, on the relations between the shapes and between the shapes and a regular pentagon. The artworks among others illustrate certain properties, such as golden mean relations, self-similarity, 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, 4th, and 5th International NanoArt Online Competition.

'A seeker is a finder...' Although in the composition the exposed forms are congruent triangles, one's playful mind's eye can find in it the elements of Penrose tilings, the regular pentagon, and the golden mean proportion, and enjoy the synthesis of the geometrical and organic.
