and rigor on the basis of sensibility. About Francisca Blázquez
thouhn all different tendencies are much more deeply related than we
initially suppossed, we commonly talk about geometry as one of the
very basic directions for the arts of our times, as well as one of
the best known branches-besides Expressionism and the superreal-which
have contributed to configure art.
within this orientation exists, since the beginning of the century, a
very clear objective to reduce ir to almost nothing in the searchings
for a ‘genuine’ art that could be painting –or any
other medium-; and also proposals which usually include an expressive
doses through color, neither limiting this to the use of primary
colors and non colors –as the neoplasticits did –and with
a treatment instead of major range and sensibility.
personally think that Francisca Blázquez is keeping the
opening of those two possibilities in the whole of her artwork, in a
kind of synthesis and progresively she seems inclined to the very
first, without losing contact with a human and creative touch.
Blázquez artwork develops contrasting effects, through the use
of complementary colors –red ad green-as well for luminousness.
She likes wholeness and intensity. I must say she does not reach
–perhaps she does not want to- the absolutely minimal estates
in morphology which are easily perceived.
some complexities, above all for oblique dinamics to which she adds
curves and straigth elements, excel elementality. She escapes
equally, with no excess from the simple red-yellow-blue with black
artist allows diverse alternatives and suggests visual elegance. So
it seems to the viewer.
either glimpses or looks for a hidden simbolism.
personality of the artist gets its proportion in between two
attitudes. One which imposses a deep request to the eye, though it
knows how to calm it; the other a vitality of movement and the peace
of the stable, a tranquil poetry. Like the surface of deep waters, a
curve of the Earth from above or a horizon where the sight rests.
