Iva Troj – My Dear Foe, Imitate Modern, 27A Devonshire St, Marylebone, London W1, 23rd –28th September 2014
This exhibition of works by the Bulgarian-born artist Iva Troj is being presented by Roberta Moore Contemporary and is Troj’s first UK solo show.
Her works are a combination of both traditional and postmodern elements – she actually uses computer-based tools and techniques to sketch and test her proposed paintings before starting on them. The results as we see are quite striking with renaissance-like figures combined with elements and symbols of Japanese art in some. The result – a new form of allegory with a modern twist perhaps?
