Intro
Silke Trekel is a German based artist, winner of Cominelli Foundation Award 2014 and Grassi Award 2013. With a long experience in the field, the artist has been a continuous presence in internacional fairs and counts with several solo exhibitions. Her work can be found in renowned public collections such as in GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts Leipzig and Galerie Marzee.

Statement

Uniformity and Irritation.
It is a challenge for me to build complex structures from basic forms which only differ slightly, in a way that from flat surfaces threedimensional shapes arise. My interest is not so much in the share formal play of geometrical elements, but rather in deviations and irregularities within these structures.
