Statement

gustavo blanco-uribe

About his work: Color is omnipresent from his beginnings, and it has been the spark of evolution. His work has become more focused bringing about the use of flat color to create silhouettes, with absence of light and shadow. Clearly unafraid of color, has brought simplification to his work with the study and use of color as maximum expression.

The patterns and decorating motifs inherent to his work, denote his experience in working with textiles, from which he adopted its imagery and the conversion of shapes into patterns. Repetition, in manifold guises, is a key feature of his practice. All throughout his work there is the use of flat backgrounds without perspective. Never partial to using shadowing as a means to create volume, introduced a subtle drawing in place of light to impart a sense of perspective, depth, mass and substance to spaces. The lines give that depth illusion. Subtle lines serve as a tool for ambience creation or parallel scenes in a space.

His creative character is dominated by his ability to see beyond a shadow, form and reflection of things in his surroundings. From a predetermined image, he brings out another figure that is not there at first sight, hidden from the naked eye. Parallel spaces, contrast, abstraction, color, movement of the figure, structure, lines, superimposing, are essentials characteristics of his work An impulse to record the world is thus only part of what fuels his art activity. Gustavo Blanco- Uribe’s work is the only window that exposes his private environment, taking us to a vibrant colored world enveloped in equilibrium, harmony and sensuality. The detailing is crucial, to a discerning sartorial scrutiny.

About the artist: Born Venezuelan, and turned a versatile artist that has developed a multidisciplinary career in decoration, fashion and fine arts.

Currently lives in Madrid, where he opened a Studio and is solely dedicated to art.
