Naca Rojnik (1951, Ljubljana) graduated from the Department of Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana under prof. Slavko Tihec. She participated in many group exhibitions and had several solo exhibitions. For many years, she was an art educator. In 2000, she received the Berneker Award. She lives and works in Graška Gora near Slovenj Gradec. She is the author of several public memorials. In her portraits, a gradual disintegration of academic realism can be observed, often imbued with a unique painterly feeling. In her sculptures, Naca Rojnik engages with abstract forms, typical of high modernism. Her sculpting journey is characterised by an unmistakable formal expression in her sculptures as well as the use of unusual materials, such as plastics. Besides the modernistically based and formally ambiguous expression, she also engages with completely traditional motifs in her sculpting, such as the portrait bust.
