Art StatementThe basic artistic objects used by Cvetka Hojnik are thus square and circle, representing the syntactic base of the artistic narration in the form of decentralized compositional net with its beginning and end somewhere in the infinity, passing from one canvas to another. Within the Pythagorean doctrine, originating from the pre-Hellenistic tradition, a square with rectangular realization, often based on the golden section, is a symbol of tetrad, i. e. four philosophical elements, each of them having its own number with a common name quaternarius: earth 4, water 3, air 2 and fire 1. The arithmetic sum of the first four numbers is 10, a decade, a symbol of universal knowledge, perfection and divinity which reflects in the artist’s spirals, symbols of life, fertility and ever-complementing of the chromosomal helix (Fibonacci’s sequence or the golden section).
