Teja Krasek

Freelance artist
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. These artworks illustrate certain properties: golden mean relations, self-similarity, fivefold symmetry, the Fibonacci sequence, inward infinity, perceptual ambiguity, and more. Krasek’s work concentrates on melding art, science, mathematics and technology. She employs contemporary computer technology as well as classical painting techniques.

Mindplay For Sir Roger
20 x 25 cm
Digital print

This perceptually instable composition consists of geometrical shapes from Penrose tilings P1 and P2 (thick and thin Penrose rhombs, and kites and darts), golden triangles on different size scales. Even if all the shapes aren't directly visible, one's mind is invited to draw invisible lines and create them - either virtually or in a printed version, for example. The composition also displays self-similarity and golden mean relations.

The artwork, 'Mindplay For Sir Roger', is dedicated to Sir Roger Penrose.
