Portraits of Alfred Freddy Krupa by Juraj Baldani (1929-2010.)

...To this presentation of  models joins another very important component: the author's attitude toward portraited person. 

In Alfred Freddy Krupa's work is seen a need of installing his  own impression that is manifested in different ways on the individual characters. From the cases where there is  accents of certain dignity, respect, through understanding of intimacy  to intimate poetic flashes, lasts gallery of characters in their authentic diversity but also with the presence of a wide range of painter's emotional reflections. 

Wealth reciprocal transmission between the painter and the model is present and when Alfred Freddy Krupa decided to take self portrait.

It was made in several variations and each decision shows the author's psychological states and introspection itself is a remarkable indication of the painter's analytics and unhindered to be honest, but a critical and autonomous....

Dr. Enes Quien (Akademija likovnih umjetnosti u Zagrebu/Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb) - Alfred Freddy Krupa

 

"Alfred Krupa experimenting with unusual techniques of grated ink and a combination of black ink and brush. But it is not a technical experiment created for mere experiment,  but a skillful artifacts for expressing one refined vision of some natural motifs, landscape with a house, a tree, a fountain, a church ... Refinement is realized with clear interplay of contrasts of white and black (no) color; steady hand and a gentle stroke, Krupa creates scenes on the principles of full and empty, positives and negatives. The points and lines drawn shapes that reflect a somewhat mystical atmosphere. "

Enes Quien PhD, professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb and an art critic

 

Alfred Krupa eksperimentira s neobičnom tehnikom struganog tuša i kombinacijom crnog tuša i kista. No, ne radi se o tehničkom eksperimentu radi pukog eksperimenta, nego o s(p)retnom iznalasku za izražavanje jednog profinjenog viđenja kakovog prirodnog motiva, pejzaža s kućom, stablom, fontanom, crkvom...Profinjenost je realizirana jasnim međuodnosom kontrasta bijele i crne (ne)boje; sigurnom rukom i nježnim potezom,Krupa stvara prizore na principima punog i praznog, pozitiva i negativa.

Točke i linije izvlače oblike koji odišu s pomalo mističnim ugođajem.

Krupa compared to Durer, Rembrandt, Picasso, Miro...

"Drawings, and delicate translucent watercolors, transmitted to us
concentrated expression of being , personality and things, just
because they are limited to the most important, the line itself.

And in the line Krupa is the strongest so far!

Many great masters of art knew the expression lines. We think only on
the nerve lines of Durer, or Rembrandt, or those of Piccaso, Miro ...

I must say that Krupa works as his craft has been taught by them! "

Andreas Berlakovich PhD (1932-2008)
Austrian diplomat, ambassador and painter

 

"Crteži,i nježni prozirni akvareli,prenose nam koncetrirani izraz
bića, lićnosti i stvari, baš zbog toga što se oni ograničavaju na
najbitnije ,na samu liniju.

A u liniji je najjači Krupa dosad!

Mnogi veliki majstori novovjekovne umjetnosti poznavali su izražajnost
linije. Mislimo samo na živčane crte Durera. Ili Rembrandta, ili one
Piccasa ,Miroa...

Moram reći Krupa kao da je kod njih učio zanat!"

Nikola Albaneže - Alfred F. Krupa in "The Generation of 90's"

" For a painter whose handwriting - ranging from academic and lapidary precision to sketch recording is so - important means of expression , as as in the case of Alfred Freddy Krupa , above all, it is the fortunate opportunity of painting and training in Japan to develop just such a predilection .

Incorporating Japanese calligraphic tradition in his own lyrical tendency of adoption of landscape motifs Krupa works in a peculiar way close to the expressive ambiguity of drawings .

Retaining the recognizable signs of selected landscape , its drawing is now developing a fully autonomous values ​​gesture which leads to the edge of abstraction .

It has already been seen in his watercolors with proved skill in controlling the application of pigment on paper .

Intensified monochrome reductions of Chinese ink applied with a strong move to the delicate Japanese paper only reinforced expressive qualities in the relationship between the display and the substrate .

Illusionist believability gave way to a specific voltage of a creative expression of these very restrained , suppressed explicit. "

Za slikara kojemu je rukopis-u rasponu od akademske preciznosti do lapidarnog krokijevskog bilježenja-tako važno izražajno sredstvo, kao što je u slučaju Alfred Freddyja Krupe, nadasve je sretna okolnost mogućnost boravka i slikarskog usavršavanja u Japanu za razvoj upravo takvih predilekcija. Ugrađujući japansku kaligrafsku tradiciju u vlastitu sklonost lirskom posvojenju pejsažnih motiva Krupa se je na osebujan način približioekspresivnom ambigvitetu crteža. Zadržavajući prepoznatljive naznake odabranih krajolika, njegov crtežsada razvija potpuno autonomne vrijednosti gestualnosti što ga dovodi na rub apstrakcije.Već je ranije u svojim akvarelima pokazao umijeće u kontroliranju nanošenja pigmenta na papir. Intezivirane crno-bijele redukcije kineskog tuša nanesenog snažnim potezom na nježan japanski papir samo su pojačale te izražajne kvalitete u odnosu između prikaza i podloge. Iluzionističkauvjerljivost ustupila je mjesto specifičnom stvaralačkom naponu kao izrazu upravo te suzdržane, suspregnute eksplicitnosti. (2000.godine)

Željko Marciuš (Moderna galerija-Modern Gallery) about Krupas drawings

... above all, intimate atmosphere and released move that  approaches to calligraphy expression. Although the manuscript has a descriptive features, they are restrained in some parties, it frees the line of the present value reaches a completely abstract form. This is a special feature of this seemingly traditional art. "

Željko Marciuš curator at the Modern Gallery - Zagreb

 

"…nadasve intimnog ugođaja i oslobođenog poteza koji se pribiližava kaligrafijskim izražajnostima.

Iako rukopis posjeduje opisne karakteristike, one su suzdržane i u pojedinim partijama linija ga oslobađa od predmetnoga i doseže sasvim apstraktnu vrijednost forme.

To je posebna značajka ovog naizgled tradicionalnog crteža."

Željko Marciuš (2002.)

Lidija Ivančević Španiček (City Museum požega) about Alfred Freddy Krupa

"... one part consisted of drawings in ink, and the other part of watercolors, which are the primary preoccupation of the painter, given that it is specialty specialized in Tokyo.

Drawings are the illustrations of the past in shaped symbols, and watercolors were shown landscapes, cultural heritage, castles.

Alfred - Freddy Krupa third painter in his family, who dedicated his life to painting, so it is not only the family but also his work patron of artistic and cultural heritage. "

Lidija Ivaničević Španiček curator at the City Museum Požega, Croatia

 

„…jedan dio čine crteži tušem, a drugi dio akvareli, koji predstavljaju i osnovnu preokupaciju slikara, obzirom da je to i njegova uža specijalnost specijalizirana u Tokiju.

Crteži predstavljaju ilustracije prošlosti uobličene u simbole, a akvarelom su prikazani pejzaži, kulturna baština, dvorci.

Alfred - Freddy Krupa treći je slikar u svojoj obitelji, koji je svoj život posvetio slikarstvu, tako da je ne samo obiteljski nego i svojim radom zaštitnik umjetničke i kulturne baštine.
