Caitlin Möhr is a Tarndanya/Adelaide based self-taught artist whose work is primarily concerned with processes of introspection by peeling back the many social and personal layers that influence human expression and consequent connection. Influenced by her observations of disconnection within her community, coupled with her own ongoing experimentations with various practices of self discovery, Caitlin exposes untapped vulnerability and seeks to uncover purity of emotion and identity to foster connection to self, authentic expression and ultimately more meaningful connection between people and the natural world. Möhr achieves this by working predominantly with oil paint and employing abstract, surreal and figurative techniques to conceptualise the breaking down preconceived ideas of identity and reconstructing them through a spiritual lens that considers the self as multidimensional and able to be known when we look beyond social and learnt labels. Over years of self-teaching Möhr has developed her own visual vocabulary, filled with colour and texture she creates symbolic, intriguing paintings that challenge viewers to question their place in the world and to understand more deeply the roles they assume. Möhr employs the use of written word, sculpture, installation and video/audio work interconnect her ideas, and is a testament to her complex, responsive nature and creative intention.
