Ingeborg Mohr

Ingeborg Mohr began her artistic career producing watercolour paintings inspired by the landscapes of her childhood in Austria as well as day to day life when she moved with her husband and three children to Saskatchewan. It wasn’t until she moved to Toronto in 1955 and encountered the work of the Painters Eleven that she began exploring the variable physical characterics of paint and color as a means to convey pure emotion over profound meaning.

It is only when standing directly in front of one of Mohr’s pieces that one can truly appreciate the beauty of the unanswered questions, embedded in the layers of paint and left behind for us, her audience, to dissect and absorb.
