Statement

Victoria DeBlassie is an artist who was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. DeBlassie uses discarded objects and materials to create art work that suggests change and development overtime. Using the refuse’s innate history, form, and function as a point of departure, she reformulates the acquired matter’s identity, sometimes inviting social interactions from the reworked materials. Selected recent works include Encyclopedia Oracle wherein an encyclopedia Britannica set from the artist’s birth year found in front of her apartment when she first moved to San Francisco became a socially engaging divination wheel, making her chance encounter other people’s synchronistic event; in Accumulated Matter an orange at a local farmers’ market, perfectly two colors, initiates revisiting the use of fruit peels to deepen a material and spatial exploration through the collection of post-consumed orange peels from local juice bars. 

DeBlassie received her BFA from the University of New Mexico in 2009 and MFA at the California College of the Arts in 2011. Recently, she was awarded a Fulbright Full Grant for Italy for the 2012-2013 academic year. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally including the de Young Museum and Make Hang Gallery in San Francisco, CA, [AC]2 Gallery in Albuquerque, NM, and the Diocesan Museum in Pienza, Italy.
