Edinburgh, 29 April - Slovenian visual artist Beti Bricelj has been selected to participate in the 195th annual exhibition of the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh. Bricelj will be featured with a piece from her FlatCube series, which she has been working on since 2017.

The most extensive modern art and architecture exhibition in Scotland is being held this year in the digital form. It opened on 2 April and is on display until 30 May.

Bricelj said that the show was the core of the exhibition programme of the Royal Scottish Academy, dedicated to the promotion of visual arts and providing a platform for Scottish art together with international artists.

The Slovenian artist is featured in the exhibition with a 40x27cm acrylic on wood from the FlatCube series, which she has been working on since 2017. The piece, called C8, was created last year.

One of the "flat cubes" received an award in 2017 at an exhibition in the Museum of Geometric and MADI Art in Dallas, US.

"In this series, I explore different perspectives, depths, apparent spaces or illusion. I deal with the detection of space or perception of the world of objects to illustrate the truth and create new untrue truth, to provoke the viewer."

Bricelj added that the exhibited picture looks like a tridimensional cube at the first glance, while a closer look reveals that it is a picture of an apparent object that could not exist in a realistic world.

The author graduated at the ArtHouse college for drawing and painting in Ljubljana in 2000, and continued her studies in Australia, where she explored the Aboriginal culture upon invitation from an Australian governmental organisation.

Bricelj has staged numerous independent and group exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad, including in Europe, Australia, the US, Israel and India. She is a member of the Union of Slovenian Fine Arts Associations.
