About Dafne Blanco

Drawing from a multi-ethnic origin and two quite opposite landscapes, I aim to create art that is larger than the sum of its parts. My work is the crossroads where cultures converge. Many worlds, one artistic emergence. Interestingly, before I integrated this transcultural identity, in a time when was very interested in the concepts of alchemy, I read in an obscure paperback edition adapted for amateur alchemists that there are many worlds, but all exist within this one. Although I never pretended to understand the deep implications of such a statement, it stirred within me an ancestral and profound evocation that without a doubt, determined the search that is present throughout my artistic practice. To me, the work of the visual artist is in fact just that: to develop the ability to catch glimpses of those other manifestations of reality that coexist, that wander around us, and are waiting to be captured by the artist. In the process of recreating them on the canvas or the ceramic sculpture, time and space intertwine and fuse together. I use mixed media in most of my artwork: multi-layered surfaces where the incorporation of diverse textures and the exploration of their expressive capacity and tactile qualities, become a metaphor for those juxtaposed realities struggling to emerge into the light...
