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.

In the artwork we can observe a net of lines and shapes that shows interconnectedness of Penrose tiles from P2 and P3 Penrose tilings (kites and darts, and rhombs), interlaced pentagons, pentagonal stars, and golden triangles. Self-similarity is evident, and golden ratio is used as a scale factor. I dedicated this artwork to the great mathematical physicist, Sir Roger Penrose, the creator of Penrose tilings, and to all who are in love with them.
