Inna Petrashkevich lives in a small town of Orsha in Belarus. A small town in a small Eastern European country. One of those towns untouched and unspoiled by civilization. Time has slowed down in Orsha, and the 21st century feels like the 18th.
It is here where Inna creates. It is the little things that she notices around her. Far away from civilization and modern luxuries, perhaps it is here that it is easier to notice small plants and creatures in her garden. Orsha is surrounded by one of the densest and older forests in Europe. It is here where everything is breathing around you. We might not hear their sounds, but plants and flowers are breathing too. Her watercolor garden paintings make us feel exactly that. She is not painting inanimate colorful objects. She is painting live creatures. She is painting flowers that want to look their best and give us joy. She is painting flowers that are dissolved in the morning fog. They are floating like clouds. They are here one second and disappear in the next one.
Her watercolor technique is perfect for this tenderness, this evanescence, these fleeting moments when flowers are blooming one day and vanish the next one — these short but beautiful moments she is capturing for us.
