I observe nature and live in relation to others. Questions alter in concepts, inspiration is fundamental.
If I see the form, it is like I have got a possible answer and I love to comunicate it.
I am quite sure, that I was born from the love between my mother and my father.
Ulrich Gerhard was born in Leipzig, Edeltraud was born in Villach. They both were capable to express entusiasm, loving nature and art.
I grew up in a beautiful, romantic garden, going by woods, climbing on the top of trees, finding many four-leaf-clovers and having first contacts with the world of arts. The snow and the far horizon, seen from mountain peaks, impressed me deeply.
Since then I love the nature, the humans, the sense of aesthetic and uncompromising truth of life.
Questions about being and opposite views connected to the relation with what I am not inspire me.
If I find the image, it is, if I have found an anwser.
It makes me deeply happy, if other persons identify, get emotioned and share with what I communicate, reporting that autobiographical contents can have general values and empathy happens between individuals.
Keeping my eyes open, I still find four clovers.
Since earliest times, Regina Hübner was drawing and dancing classic ballett. A friendship to an Austrian sculptor strenghted her idea to go on the path of art.
In 1980 she moved to Graz, where she started to paint in big dimensions.
The years in Graz were fundamental in her personal and artistic development. Studies of the Italian language in Perugia and Rome.
In 1985 she awarded Master of Arts in Graphic-Design at the Höhere Lehranstalt für Kunst und Design HTBLVA Graz-Ortweinschule, Graz, Austria.
In 1985 she worked for the first time with stone during a workshop, in the caves of St. Margarethen, Austria.
This meant a keye experience, which led her to go for one year to Carrarra, Italy.
During this period, instead of workin with marble, she painted on big sized, very thin papers and tissues. The Italian language became predominant.
In 1986 Regina Hübner moved to Rome.
In 1990 she graduated Master of Arts in Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Italy.
During this period she preferred painting, drawing and forming free hanging thin plastiques, reaching lesser materical œvres since 1989 and combining interactions with movements and projections of slides/light/shadow in ambientations.
In 1995 she gave birth to her first daughter Galatea and in 2000 to her second daughter Vega Veridiana. Those new lifes, inspired many artworks and questions about time and life. Growing up the two daughters, she re-discovered the bonding to her mother-language, German.
Since the '90 Regina Hübner visualizes her ideas mainly with experimental photography, film and video, performance, objects, ongoings. She creates so-called Ambientations, in which the artwork changes in order to the specific space or situation of its exhibition, in interaction with ambient and environment, becoming unique and not repeatable bodies.
The silent, from the nature registered pure or elaborated sounds, artificial or uncontrolled movements like the swinging of a tree branch in the wind can be a determining part. Also natural or artificial changements, interaction with animated beings - the visitors - and inanimated subjects can change the aspect of the artwork. The manuality, the handmade gestures are the growing entity of a work in progress including drawings, crafts and narrative.
The concept is basic. Text is part of the whole artwork, and extends communication.
Long-term themes manifest connnections between artworks from different periods. So we can find the iconography of specularity, repitition, circulation, endlessness, inversion of processes, and the concepts of the ongoing of time, the opposite, the relation, the communication, the perception.
Deep friendships led to collaborations with creatives from the fields of visual art, music, literature and science.
Hübner works also with groups of persons, often important figures in her own life, the so-called Protagonists.
Their experiences are central contributions of the artwork itself.

Decoration of Honour in Gold to the City of Villach, Goldenes Ehrenzeichen der Stadt Villach (2021)

She gets her inspirations by questions about life and relationships between the individuum and universal concepts. Using different means to express her ideas, from experimental photography, video, sound, performance and ambientations, to texts, subjects and objects, the artist creates artworks connected to ongoing themes and realizes unique Ambientations.
Hübner works also by involving other persons in her projects, the so-called Protagonists, or in collaboration with scientists and artists from the fields of visual art, literature and music.
