CRITICAL REVIEW:

* His performances welcome the opportunity of his rare visual and precise pictorial language, expressed with poetic sense and high technical. His gesture is conducted with balance, speed and thrills emotional structure, stressing the joyful certainty filtered from his dream world.
His painting is not just figurative and not only once again copying easy and predetermined, but with a deeper reality cleansed through memory, suggestions, imagination and feelings and print on the blank canvas all his precious expression.
His works are the realization of its ideals, the affirmation of freedom and sensitivity which would reduce his thoughts into mere recognition.
 
* The art of Claudio Sireci imposes a vision of total funds available intellectual, knowing drawn from real poetry, with its own internal law, not codified, but through the light of liberty, a free man of his faith, the great dawn of a new dimension explicated Abstract removed from reality, a reconquest of the artist than contemporary alienation. Sireci loves figuration but deepens the reality, purifying it through memory and its arcane archetypal mirages of suggestion. His elaboration of abstraction, between reality and imagination unbridled, for all his work arises from a concentration psycho-aesthetic involved than in the dialogue between the pictorial material, forms and o-unconscious. There is in him the mad desire to seek a new world for him alone, a detachment from reality to be analyzed purely intellectual. A world as seen by the eyes of visionary, with the strength and energy of color and emotion with its reciprocal reflexes: the formation and dissolution, with a dense forest of symbols. The expression on his abstract, detached from reality, and a background of myth, and that when the composition has absorbed a lyrical dream-mythical dimension. His figures timeless but not buildings, suspended in a mysterious atmosphere to the limit of the fleeting, almost fantastic, but ordered the surreal vision at the same time that separates the dream from reality. A reality transfigured into freedom of expression, form and color are attaining their performance, in a freedom of the image fell in the imagination, but unbridled creativity. Another element whose presence-absence does not seem marginal to the economy of his compositions, is light. The body of matter colorist praised in writing of lightness that is the bottom, the color, the density of the draft, leaving little room for the light, but it is not present, the search for knowledge through the process of detachment from reality, the 'expression of the abstract common with other forms, and the nature and man are the sources of his inspiration, with the theme that sometimes seems to' break 'into many fragments of geometry, but which actually reduces the unit, through the harmony of the whole, with the eyes of a dreamer.
Critic and art historian Dr. ALFREDO PASOLINO

* The archetype of artistic Claudio Sireci, is the result of masterful use acrylic paint, collage traditional and the alternation with the angular tract gentle and introverted. He said the object of the pictorial metaphor, describing the basting effectiveness based on the close link between the sign and thought, both aspects of the same reflection of reality.
Critic and artist Arnaldo Pauselli
