From the series "Layered Pictures"

"In 1994 Alfred Resch began working with strips of adhesive tape and has continued to
explore this formal method in all directions and genres, abstract and concrete,
in painting and photography. He has employed two variants exhaustively:
geometric-linear superimpositions that overlay two or more pictures like louvers,
and the random generation of ever new balances in chaotic structures, an informal
All-over technique in which snippets of adhesive tape are applied to layers of
color and progressively painted over. The superimposed images, each of which
is an interesting abstract color composition in itself, are thereby transformed
into compressed time. Different image spaces overlay and permeate one another.
The picture depth can only be measured in fragments and each step in the process of increasing density constitutes a further stumbling block to rapid visual
comprehension. Observation, too, needs time.

The layered pictures by Alfred Resch deal with the compression of information and light and with the storage of energy and time. They are so complexly constructed that the design process can no longer be deciphered by the beholder. “Deep Space, Flat Space” is the title of another series by Alfred Resch. Here too, superimpositions constitute an obstacle to perception.
what appears flat and what appears three-dimensional is a question of perspective.
which image is dominant, which one constitutes the pictorial ground and which
is superimposed? we want to know this in order to form a perceptual preference, a
focus, since perception relies on blocking things out. But what should we block out?
Darker colors suggest the underlying surface of the picture but this is not the case
in all the images. we are unable to discern a structure by which to orient ourselves.
These unsettling qualities compel the beholder to experience himself as a perceiver."

About the artist




Born 1962 in Graz; freelance visual artist; since 1981 active in the fields of painting, graphics, objects, sculptures, photography, installations, videos, mixed media. At the same time until 1991 training in electronics and completed studies in architecture. Since 2002 exclusive activity as a freelance visual artist. Lives in Graz and Havana.

Until the beginning of the 1990s, the catalogue of works comprised several thousand works, mainly graphics and paintings in expressionist style. In 1994 the first "layered pictures" were created and the series of works tended towards a geometric-abstract direction. More and more structures and individual elements are shaping the design. Subsequently, the painting, in combination with the technique of release, is transferred to various materials such as stone, metal plates or fabric. From the end of the 1990s onwards, additional works with a sculptural character, land art projects, photography cycles and installations were created. The most diverse media begin to mix, and the latest technologies from the fields of lighting engineering and electronics are incorporated into the works.
