Bulgarian artist Iva Troj’s first UK solo show, My Dear Foe, opens this week at London’s Imitate Modern gallery. The exhibition, running from  23 – 28 September 2014 sees the 2013 Towry National Open Art Prize winner seamlessly incorporate Troj’s vast experience of traditional painting techniques with postmodern elements to create engaging, Renaissance-style works that challenge the notion of societal conformity.

Born in Bulgaria, Iva Troj creates work originating fundamentally in the crossing of two major paths, confounded in a physical movement from her homeland. Knowledge of traditional art techniques were first inspired by the necessity to fit within Cold War aesthetics of social realism.

Introduced to digital technology in the early ’90s, her use of computer-based tools and techniques has allowed her to sketch and test concepts before painting, resulting in the surprising – at times startling – compositions and juxtapositions that make up her final canvases.

From this intersection of old and new Iva Troj’s technique has evolved into something very personal.
