Antonia Riederer studied painting at the Kunstuniversität (University of Art) Linz under
Eric Ess and Ursula Hübner. She is strongly influenced by classical modernism and
developed her visual themes early on.
"Riederer's works are always figurative, though at times highly abstracted. The graphic element in the form of a powerful contouring approach is as present in her work as the painterly aspects. Her color compositions are unmistakable; notable for the way she subdivides forms using colour surfaces and positions them spatially to achieve astonishing three-dimensional results to the eye. While individual objects, figures and heads are primary forms for Riederer, this appears not to be due to interest in their superficial details; above all her landscapes convey strong moods. Here, too, she transforms the special, particular aspects into the general, universal, and therefore, in all genres, she is subject to an anonymization of the world which thus proclaims a ring of universality and permanence. The expression of the image statement requires openness. An openness to viewing humanity in its entirety is nescessary in order to discover the central meaning of our existence. While individual objects, figures and heads are of interest primarily as a form, rather than for their superficial details; landscapes are especially strong mood carriers. "Antonia Riederer's works are not attempting to change the world. They show the liveliness and dynamics that lie in the immediate world experience. And that is precisely why they meet the needs and the pulse of the time. "
