Day 198: Inna Rohr

Inna Rohr was born in 1984 in Tallinn, Estonia  - a small and cozy Baltic country in Northern Europe (Soviet Union then).   Her relationship with art started at an early age with art classes, piano lessons and gymnastics – a pretty standard package for a post soviet girl-child. Being exposed to both Russian and European cultures have played a significant role in her development as an artist. In 2004 she has decided to trade layers of winter clothing for flip flops and move to toasty Arizona, United where she has been living and working ever since. In her work Inna enjoys exploring what it means to be a human being: our frailties, vices, sexuality, downfalls. “I find the continuous process of breaking down and healing to be an infinite source of inspiration and reflection,“ – Rohr says. „When we bare our souls a real conversation happens. Art is a conversation not only between artist and viewer,  but within one’s self.“ Inna’s subjects, themes and pallete are moody, at times even dark, but always with a presence of light, exposing human experiences. It is about fears, insecurities, addictions. It’s about finding spirituality and getting lost on the way, about allowing and exposing, about courage and weaknesses… it’s about being human. Inna works in oils and is obsessed with their buttery texture and workability. When she she is not painting in her studio, she is out dancing Argentine Tango, teaching adults to paint or practicing playing her accordion, aka her main squeeze, Ivan Ivanych.

  2. I just bought a beautiful painting of Inna's. It is a humorous piece which looks like an egret throwing a tantrum. So funny! The art you see here is emotional and intense, but she also paints city streets, birds...really talented.
