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.

Placed into an octagonal space we can observe a net of lines that forms interconnectedness of elements from P2 and P3 Penrose tilings (kites and rhombs), interlaced pentagons, pentagonal stars, and triangles. Observer's mind can organize and interpret the connections in various ways.
