    SubmissionFriday:
"In her current works AJ Trojnarski refers to electrophysical discoveries of the 18th and 19th century that form the foundation for industrial development and modern progress. The artist deals in particular with electro-magnetic experiments and phenomenons, especially the experiments of Nicola Tesla.The correspondent painting Tesla relates to the laboratory of the scientist which was located in the mountain desert of Colorado Springs. Around the largest Tesla-coil a simple wooden house was constructed. Here Tesla undertook his experiments with enormous lightning discharge. In the painting itself the artist unloads with broad brush marks intensive colours; orange and purple shades are strongly contrasting. In between the lucent fragments, pieces of pale areas are connected collage-like with each other.”
