Amèlia Riera has worked drawing, painting and engraving. She is a founding member of the Cycle of Art of Today in 1962, she participates in the Salón de Mayo and the Salón Feminino de Arte Actual de Barcelona, as well as in art fairs in Basel and New York. She is one of the most important Catalan creators of Informalism. She evolves towards a very personal neo-surrealist stage, creating dreamlike and astral worlds. If at first his main axes were sadomasochism, eroticism and necrophilia, later these have been displaced by the search for emptiness, nothingness or the placement of everyday elements, which intuit the human presence in his works, without being represented. . All this, she prints a strong ritual character of solemn environments, arranged with a central perspective, not exempt from a certain funereal character. Her paintings are exponents of a meticulous and perfectionist work, and in terms of color it is conditioned by the staging, and consequently they are usually dark tones with central points of light.
Her particular and personal work has been seen in national and international exhibitions.
