Christina Mitterhuber

Christina Mitterhuber is a self-taught painter. Having studied and worked for several years not only in Europe but also in North America and Australia she has frequented museums and galleries all over the world. Not feeling ready to show her work, however, she postponed her debut until 2018, when she held her first exhibition in one of Vienna's most important galleries. Since then she has not stopped, holding exhibitions all over the world. Earthquake, the painting presented by the artist on this occasion, pays tribute to the perfection of certain moments of infinity that life gives each of us, almost a parenthesis of paradise on earth. Each color, in perfect harmony with the others on the canvas, seems to evoke these small moments of shaking, celebrating their beauty and importance. Christina's inspiration for this work comes from the words of a Whitney Houston song, 'One moment in time', which celebrates the courage to strive to become what you want to be (I want one moment in time/ When I'm more than I thought I could be/ When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away/ And the answers are all up to me/ Give me one moment in time/ When I'm racing with destiny/ Then in that one moment of time/ I will feel/ I will feel eternity). Entrusting her message to a lively and highly expressive composition in which the different textures of stones, pearls and dried leaves blend on the canvas in a perfect symphony, the artist celebrates the opportunities that life offers to each of us, urging us not to miss them.
