A visit to Tatiana Blanqué studio
How would you define your work?
I have the need to always find a way out and my insistence on understanding how our environment can so directly affect us and us have been and continue to be my driving force. I want to find authenticity in our reality, whatever it is, I like how and in what way we reflect in mirrors and how our own shadow defines our reason for being. I like to choose small pieces of reality and enclose them in geometrically perfect spaces, although transparent, to enjoy and control them.
Nature, which is directly part of my life, offers me the opportunity to enter my thoughts. Its purity, its nakedness, its diversity, its disordered order, its "semi-noisy" silence, its sensation of collective solitude, its lights and its shadows... All this, in contrast to the timeless blank canvas, explaining what each one want to read Personal sets, true, silent, mine and the spectator's.
Could you tell us about your creative process?
I have my routines, I like to get up early to go for a walk in the woods next to my house and the workshop, look for points of view that attract me, stop to breathe, observe. I look for branches that take center stage of the selected vision. I download the images and make copies in low resolution and in black and white, from this moment I limit myself to observing spaces, trunks, crowns, branches that may interest me and I begin to build my own forests, always timeless, infinite, defined. My tools, the bic pen, permanent black markers, black inks, oils, fabrics, paper, methacrylates... I like to find synonyms for the words that I associate with my work, I love to write.
I love the world of the conceptual and I try to work in parallel. I would like to be able to communicate the respect and concern I feel for how badly we take care of our nature, it isour livelihood, it should be one of our main concerns.
When and for what reasons did you start painting?
Actually I wanted to be a dancer, luckily my desire to draw was stronger. I have always liked painting, I always wanted to get into the paintings that I was passionate about. The truth is that it was the only thing where I really felt myself.
Since I was very little, I dedicated my time to painting, copying, drawing whatever came to my mind. But I love being able to accompany her with writing. I enjoy explaining what I see, what I feel, because I move in timeless settings full of nature, trees, I am passionate about it.
Could you tell us about your most important artistic projects?
All important and none, always exciting. The truth is that I have been painting for 18 years. During all this time I have had more and less intense periods, but it has been these last few years that I have been able to dedicate myself 100%.
I have exhibited abroad, in Barcelona, Paris, NY, Rome, Egypt, Brussels, Andorra, Valencia, Madrid, Reus... and I hope to continue working for many more years.
