Antonia Riederer addresses the immediate living space in her paintings. This examination calls for a kind of clarity that is investigated, searched through, tracked down and experienced. Our habitat is very dense, thus the necessity to search for a system of order. It´s about form finding. The environment ist transformed by perception and design, giving the viewer a new perspective.
She is strongly influenced by classical modernism and developed her visual themes early on. Works are always figurative, though at times highly abstracted. The graphic element in the form of a powerful contouring.
"The representation of the experiences and feellings of the painter, which is elementary for her, is formulated. Color and form structures represent spatial situations, figures and objects. A new interpretation reveals gaps and exposes the hidden."
WHO I AM
