Inna Wegener is a multidisciplinary artist from Kyiv, Ukraine. Her portfolio defies easy categorization. From oil paintings to murals, installations, performance, Wegener works across genres, techniques and mediums to convey her ideas through a range of innovative and ever-evolving formats. A constant throughout her work is and an experimental outlook and exploration of reality and subjectivity.

About the Art

Derealization is a concept by Inna Wegener in her long-standing affinity with the abnormal subjective experience in which the external world appears strange or unreal. It focuses on a facet of her work that is attentive to how painting practice and perception disconnection where the perceptual alteration in derealisation as “experiences of unreality” or detachment concerning surroundings lean into one another.

Perceptual alterations of shape, size, or colour in “Derealization” have been less studied by scientists. Thus, little is known about the neural mechanisms of altered visual perception associated with feeling unreal.

“I do believe that we have multiple layers of different realities, but we can’t see all of them at the same time. My work is about trying to capture this phenomenon that is happening to me too and interpret this real-unreal world through the colour vibrations.” - Inna Wegener

Inspired by nature, the environment, and our relationship with our surroundings, Wegener’s works questions our perception of the outside world through alien shapes and colors that abandon pure representation in favor of abstract exploration. Using watercolor, acrylics, inks and crayons, Wegener uses her paintings to reveal uncharted new worlds. Even in these paintings, Wegener’s multidisciplinary experience is apparent, as the artist uses brushes, hands, pens, markers for street art, spray, pencils and acrylic in unison to create these bustling works.

The free-form, poetic composition of her works belies a painstakingly meticulous technique – a single painting can take months to complete. Slowly building up layer by layer, the paintings explore the ideas of space, form and color, each work inviting repeated viewings and re-interpretation.
