 Trofimiuk Zoja

1952 Prague, Czech Republic

……”Her work is a correspondingly rich mix of the strong geometric and a free-spirited, almost mischievous, approach to composition.  Underpinning this mix, however, is a thoughtfulness that is rare in all the arts.” …..

….”Zoja Trofimiuk’s sculpture bears all the hallmarks of an intellect that has thought long and hard about what the purpose of art is.  At its best, it is the work of an artist in full maturity, and displays almost breathtaking technical ability.  It is always energetic, challenging and provoking the onlooker.

……It is work of unquestionable and enduring quality.”

………..”Central to her sculpture-predominantly in bronze- is the idea of tension.  There is tension in the often daring balances she forces on her works, tension between different parts of pieces, between the piece itself and the space it occupies and also a tension between the subject of the sculpture and the piece itself……….                       In this way she is making her own mark on what has come before her, re-interpreting the commonplace…..”

                                                                   Andrew Wilkins, MUSE August 1991, Canberra

 “The development of Zoja’s sculpture has followed a path that is a conceptual one of volume and space, always related to the human form. This sculptor, whether working in bronze or glass, is constantly tackling the problems of body-space relationships. Here is a sculptor whose work is intellectually stimulating and tactile.  Here is a sculptor whose work is intellectually stimulating and tactile.  The viewer constantly wishes to follow the forms touch the textured  surfaces whether they be ultra smooth or roughened.  Always the proportions are in harmony.”
