Petra von Kazinyan (*1976 in Gelnhausen/Germany) lives and works in Vienna. Her works have been shown in numerous exhibitions and art fairs in Austria and abroad, recently f.e. in Paris, Vienna, London, Berlin and Beijing.

Turning from figuration to abstraction, the main focus of her research is on the concept of identity in a globalized digital world: In a mise en scène of the human ego, her abstract works seem to have no beginning and no end, are cut off by or break out of the edges of the canvas. The result is an endless, weightless space, semipermeable, porous, open.

Petra von Kazinyan's work reflects our present in many ways: the rapid change in her artistry, the instability and fragility of forms and the transformation of space through experience.
