Elena Blasco, who lives and works in Madrid, is a multidisciplinary artist with a long and renowned career, who combines sculpture, painting, photography and installation and who, over the last four decades, has been developing work in which , with an intelligent subjective and ironic view, recreates everyday objects and supports to build a personal and unique work in which, using a sharp and insightful sense of humor and false ingenuity, she refers to capital issues such as gender violence or Social injustices.
Her artistic career concentrates a unique set of works that are characterized by the brilliant play of colors, the variety of techniques and textures and the mixture of elements of high and low culture. A carefree and irreverent air in her creations camouflages a radical background in terms of the meanings she projects, questioning clichés and prejudices of today’s society. Her work is represented in important public and private collections.
Her recognizable and unique imagery, mixing sculpture in different materials, paintings, acetates and various other elements, achieves a true sensory explosion, both tactile and visual, as was evident in her latest exhibitions at La Casa Encendida, or Sala Alcalá 31 in Madrid.
