The first in a series of solo exhibitions presented at CentralTrak this Spring is the Polish-born/Dusseldorf-based artist Angelika J. Trojnarski. The exhibition named "Mensura: Measuring the World" opens with a reception at CentralTrak on Saturday, March 5 from 8-10pm. The exhibition will continue through April 16.
Trojnarski’s paintings refer to historical scientific discoveries of the 18th and 19th century that provide the foundation for contemporary industrial development. The motifs employed by the artist in these abstract works include electro-magnetic experiments and phenomenon, optics, gravity, astronomy and space.
Trojnarksi recognizes strong parallels between the work of artists and scientists. She notes the necessity of each having passion and sensitivity in their respective profession while utilizing the powers of observation, creativity and a impulse for advancing knowledge. Trojnarski feels that she inhabits the space between these two creative fields and that her paintings can be read artistically as well as scientifically.
Angelika J. Trojnarski is represented by Galerie Tanja Wagner in Berlin and is an artist-in-residence at CentralTrak Spring 2016.
