Francisca Blázquez is one of the most impressive contemporary artists I know. Her work starts by analyzing the reality and thinking about possible worlds. Posible ways to change reality, to re-create a status of living our everyday life. And she makes this research using 3D modelers and all new technologies we know. After thios first experimentation, she Animate her virtual reality. Because of she has a great curriculum as dancer, she has the key to express feelings emotions passions and movement in the best way. I love her videos. So, from body to virtuality, from reality to digital, Francisca tell us her personal way of thinking about life, of thinking art. Contemporary art, that today, has too many problems of expression. As curator and as artist too, I think she will show us all the wonderful possibilities of contemporary art-world and her reserarch will continue to find new styles and ideas. As all great artists of the history.

Francisca Blázquez, Creator of "the Dimensionalismo"

Francisca Blázquez, multidisciplinary artist, works in painting, sculpture, engraving, conventional photography, digital photography, experimental retail jewelry, drawing and in technology in Three D (Three Dimensions), carrying out with this last one, Net.Art and digital creations that lately are expressed on diverse backgrounds. Likewise, Francisca carries out creations and expositions which combine movement, "cinetismo" and compositions using space with energy and a dimensional approach.

Her painting concentrates on utilizing contemporary geometry that has evolved until, in 1998, she created "the Dimensionalismo", based on the beating of known dimensions to date to be interested in speaking of the multidisciplinary and multidimensional, in which no limits exist.

Francisca works in the transformation forms –through color. The form is the structure constituted by the color that establishes a theory of opponents as they have employed tone, organizing perspectives, compositions that, still being planned, tend to be spacially geometric and lean toward a consolidation of multidimensial diversity as an axis of their speech.

Francisca's tendency toward the dimensional increases in her work in the technology of Three D (Three Dimensions) by computer in which she establishes a multiplicity of dimensional approaches, in her work on Net.Art and in her multiple digital creations expressed with "metacrilato" and industrial canvas, fundamentally. These creations are structured around a formal facility that the artist presents in such a way that configures a gifted composition of permanent movement, in which the forms are always being transformed.

This is a start but not an end. That is to say that the works remain open to new transformations.

The artist feels that her contemporary dimensional art is not to be closed to finished and perishable products. Art for Francisca Blázquez is multidimensional and eternal, in the sense that the creator can always intervene in it and when this is carried out there is a transfer in the step of time in who takes charge of forming a creation. For that reason her work, conceived in the technology of Three D, ia a product of a complex elaboration, feverish and elegant, where "superponiendo dimensions" and the creation experiences are full of constant changes, being transformed from am aforesaid form into new configurations, given that art cannot be a closed concept, such as the end product of a compact car.

For that reason art's speech evolves from the limitations of the background, of the contained conventionalisms in its own parameters of the plastic disciplines Francisca utilizes, toward a creative conception in which a transformation inherent in its own work is produced, that the artist calls "Dimensionalismo" and that we verify, especially, in its digital artistic animations.

Geometry and rigor on the basis of sensibility. About Francisca Blázquez

Even thouhn all different tendencies are much more deeply related than we initially supposed, we commonly talk about geometry as one of the very basic directions for the arts of our times, as well as one of the best known branches-besides Expressionism and the superreal-which have contributed to configure art.

From within this orientation exists, since the beginning of the century, a very clear objective to reduce ir to almost nothing in the searchings for a ‘genuine’ art that could be painting –or any other medium-; and also proposals which usually include an expressive doses through color, neither limiting this to the use of primary colors and non colors –as the neoplastic did –and with a treatment instead of major range and sensibility.

I personally think that Francisca Blázquez is keeping the opening of those two possibilities in the whole of her artwork, in a kind of synthesis and progressively she seems inclined to the very first, without losing contact with a human and creative touch.

Francisca Blázquez artwork develops contrasting effects, through the use of complementary colors –red ad green-as well for luminousness. She likes wholeness and intensity. I must say she does not reach –perhaps she does not want to- the absolutely minimal estates in morphology which are easily perceived.

Though some complexities, above all for oblique dinamics to which she adds curves and straigth elements, excel elementality. She escapes equally, with no excess from the simple red-yellow-blue with black and white.

The artist allows diverse alternatives and suggests visual elegance. So it seems to the viewer.
Whom either glimpses or looks for a hidden symbolism.

The personality of the artist gets its proportion in between two attitudes. One which imposses a deep request to the eye, though it knows how to calm it; the other a vitality of movement and the peace of the stable, a tranquil poetry. Like the surface of deep waters, a curve of the Earth from above or a horizon where the sight rests.
