Press Release

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to view the works of award-winning contemporary artist Iva Troj!
She is exhibiting her work in collaboration with 22blocks and online until the end of 2018. Some of the work included in this online show, such as “Bride Series – Diptych” and “Sorry To See You Go”, is exclusively sold here!

Troj’s intensely detailed images achieve astonishing tricks of light and shade, as practised by the great masters while incorporating dreamlike scenes which challenge cultural norms. Exhausted by a society in which women often feel vulnerable, threatened, or powerless, Troj recasts the fairer sex as powerful creatures, freed from the oppressive male gaze and placed within Edenic settings where they can revel in their own beauty and potential. Blending abstraction with figuration, the natural world with the urban landscape, dream with reality, Troj’s breathtakingly beautiful artworks achieve something truly unique, both in terms of aesthetics and concept.

In 2016, Troj was named Contemporary Art Excellence Artist of the Year and, in 2013, was the winner of the Towry Best of East England Award. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and is permanently represented in Brighton and Shoreditch, London.
