The principal focus of my work is on the optical qualities of
color. From a distance, the individual marks lose their identity; hues are seen in the mid-range and these, then, coalesce to form a textural, geometric image. The mandala represents oneness, integration, balance andunity. Some of the pieces exhibit an inherent meditative quality.
Confronting my own mortality has increased my awareness of deeply rooted spiritual concerns. Thus, my art deals not only with self -unity but also with some type of oneness with God, a Higher Power, Nature or the Cosmos.
Rohrer, born in Washington, D.C., was educated at Randolph-Macon
Woman's College, Harvard University and the Silvermine Guild Center for the Arts. Three-dimensional tiered wooden structures have evolved from canvases painted with the illusion of three dimensions. Both types of acrylic works are painted with techniques inspired by the marking process of Seurat and Albers' color theories and geometrical presentations. Rohrer's work has been included in Connecticut Art Annual competitions (Stamford Museum and Nature Center), Faber Birren National Color Award Shows (Stamford Art Association) and Art of the Northeast USA exhibitions (Silvermine Guild
Center for the Arts).
Honors received have been the Golden Color Award at the Ridgefield Guild of Art, the Liquitex Color Award from Connecticut Women Artists and awards in sculpture and painting from the Stamford Art
Association. Rohrer's work has been shown in group shows at the Discovery Museum, the Mattatuck Museum, the John Slade Ely House, the Katonah Museum and Northern Westchester Center for the Arts. Solo exhibitions have been held at the Landmark Lobby, Art/Ex and Art/Place galleries in Connecticut and the Hiram Halle Memorial Library in Pound Ridge, New York.
