    About The Work

    Where emphasis has lain previously on the interplay between technology and nature, the focus of her new series shifts solely to landscapes. These are impressive phenomena that the artist has encountered during her scholarship stays in recent years in Texas and Iceland, among others. Trojnarski captures sheet lightning, thunderbolts, extraordinary cloud formations and melting ice bergs through a vigorous and equally sensitive combination of painting and drawing. With glowing reds, warm yellows, electric-radiant blues and poisonously contrasting purple she explores not only static conditions but processes of transformation, the change in the aggregate states of the elements. 
    This contemporary form of painting stands with art's long grappling with a nature whose at times overwhelming power was captured in the philospohical aesthetic concept of the sublime in the 18th century, but where that awesome power still experienced a natural origin during the Enlightenment, the meteorology of the present day has long born the stamp of the man-made.
