For the online edition of ARCO Madrid, we present a solo show of Mireille Blanc.
The artist develops her research about points of view and subject’s abstraction. Indeed, the glance remains a fundamental question in her work. She uses photograph as a basis for her work, in an attempt to capture singular and spontaneous moments, with a variety of scales and frames. Nevertheless, she does not stand exclusively in a figurative approach. By cropping and deforming the source image, she successively adds new angles, gradually leading to a shift of the initial attention. In this way, she tends towards abstraction while preserving the details of the image’s fabrication process. Thus, Mireille Blanc seeks to lose the viewer in her pieces, immersing us in a succession of picture’s alterations that she reproduced in painting to create ambiguity between figuration and abstraction.
