Alfred Rece

Romania

Rece Alfred’s painting is an eye catcher for its Hyperrealistic approach.

Without any doubt, Rece Alfred’s painting is an eye catcher for its Hyperrealistic approach.


Alfred Rece is an artist preoccupied with illustrating the ever changing mould of the human being, focusing on presenting iconic figures belonging to the past and the present.


The fast evolution of technology, scientific progress, the infinite discoveries of the new mankind, all these had brought changes in one’s thought and behavior. But his paintings draw attention to the best and worst of the past and the present: love, the innocence and beauty of our children, morals and humanity as values on one hand, and on the other, wars, sacrifice, manipulation, kitsch.


Being an Appropriationist in his compositions, Alfred Rece opposed the already famous images of kissing couples of the World War II to exclusively feminine figures of contemporary showbiz, commercial idols of the present civilization. All this in order to mourn the loss of innocence, of a romantic soul and of a sincere feeling (immortalized in real moments) and to signalize the focus of media set on nightmare constructions based on sexuality and grotesque. Alfred Rece creates a symbolic game in his compositions, opposing faces of the present to the iconic images of the past, striking the viewer with his message.


One can watch his paintings as visual elegies of an author suspended in time, also representing the fight to identify now the values of the past.
