Inna Bruter
Light through we

February 21–March 20, 2020

FIAF Montclair presents Light through we, an exhibition of works on paper by New Jersey-based, Moldova-born artist Inna Bruter.

The works on display evoke and celebrate what is often private: the inner life, protected from the outside world, reflecting emotions, dreams, and growth of personal wisdom. The images are an exploration of fluid, feminine forms with delicate design. The binary color scheme seeks to illuminate the movement of lines and curves to give them full force of expression.

“In these drawings, I explore the opening up and flowering from childbirth and motherhood, and the joyful realization of the feminine as a force of nature at the epicenter of life. I explore the maternal lines, family, one’s self as a woman, one’s self as a mother, and the connection between the generations.” — Inna Bruter

Inna Bruter has expressed her art through drawing from a young age, with an interest in the interconnected movements through art history. She immigrated to the United States with her mother, father, and grandmother when she was eight years old and received a Bachelor of Arts from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.
