Nikolaj Recke's works are inspired and created by his love and desperate search for art.
Nikolaj Recke's (b.1969, Denmark) overall output of artworks makes its thrust in many directions. However, he often works around the stereotypes, among these being the romantic and notions of the artist's identity, where the artist subject makes a distinct appearance. In Recke's work, this is cultivated, and it s even over-acted. Recke plays upon the idea of authenticity, which is normally conjoined with the artist's creative process - the notion of the genius who can accomplish something completely extraordinary that not everybody else can.
Nikolaj Recke has since 1997 exhibited through Stalke Galleri.
