Brief Biography


Hanna Scheriau, a member of the professional association of visual artists in Austria, (born November 16, 1942 in Vienna) studied theater studies at the University of Vienna with a focus on stage design and costumes.

In the summer of 1962 she graduated from Oskar Kokoschka's legendary "School of Seeing" in Salzburg, which he himself was still running at the time.

Marriage and family forced her to end her studies early after three successful years. Despite having a family with three daughters, the artist never stopped drawing and painting on paper, canvas, wood, glass and ceramics.

Around the year 2000, Hanna Scheriau discovered the medium of "silk" for her artistic work and developed a completely new way of painting, which she called "EXPERIMENTAL PAINTING ON SILK". Since then she has worked as a freelance artist in Salzburg. A few years ago she moved to Moosdorf in Upper Austria, where she still lives and works today.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.

Philosophical Insights:


Scheriau's art seeks to transcend the ordinary, to unlock doors to realms beyond the tangible and to challenge the constraints imposed by conventional perceptions of reality. She aims to bridge the gap to 'the other side of reality' through the profound aesthetic of her creations.


Quote from Dr. Helmut Orpel, Art historian and author (2009):


"The reason silk has become integral to Hanna Scheriau’s practice is not only for the effects achievable solely through this medium but also for its enigmatic splendor, luminous depth, and boundless pictorial space."


Legacy:


In 2005, Prof. Ernst Fuchs, a founder of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism, dedicated a personal poem to Scheriau, encapsulating her influence and standing within the artistic community.
