About the Artist

Born 1978 in Hartberg, Austria, Aurelia Gratz  graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, the city where she now lives and works.

“The imaginary world of Aurelia Gratzer is a purely pictorial one. The various tasks in the history of painting are reflected in her paintings and find their execution in a very subjective manner. The basis of her work are photos, partly taken by her, partly taken from magazines. The space confronting us [is] the means to the end. Her central perspective projection of the rooms is divided into single fields. By working carefully along she achieves the advancement of her pictures, similar to a film script, by splitting the copy (template) into painting quotations of areas and changing it in her own exciting three dimensional way. There is no room for pure chance, even though Aurelia Gratzer recently tolerates a variation from this self-set plan.” — Eva-Maria Bechter
