Erwin Rios

I was born and grown up in Chile. Since my early youth I have been living in Austria. During my studies of art history and work in the art field, I have simultaneously and continuously developed as a painter. Not professionally at first, but out of an inner need to order thoughts and emotions and to transport them from the inside to the outside.

Being an artist has never been a job for me, but a matter of course, a personal matter. For me it is a complex, demanding work full of emotions. Therefore, my paintings are a very personal expression of topics that concern me.

The series “Quo Vadis” is a contemplation of different forms of human interaction and resulting consequences. The series “Moments” deals with our living space, memories and future. Deforestation, flooding, drought … the news is imprinting in my subconscious and throwing questions. Memories from my childhood and landscapes from today… will they still be there tomorrow? What will they be like? How is our quality of life affected by the way we interact with nature, what interrelationships arise…? I capture moments, moods and reality mixed with memories and fantasy. This in the awareness that nothing is as it was, and nothing will remain as it is. We carry the past in our memory, the future in our responsibility.
