Isidro Blasco in Shanghai

More than anywhere else in the world, Shanghai is a city in constant flux.  The never-ending sound of construction creates a landscape that is constantly evolving, barely recognisable from one year to the next.

Isidro Blasco is fascinated by this evolution.  In his mixed-media pieces, Blasco combines architecture and photography with recycled building materials to manipulate well-known perspective of Shanghai, both old and new.  The work becomes angular and fragmented – almost like a Cubist painting, in fact – and, at once familiar and new.

Isidro is coming to Dominik Mersch Gallery in Waterloo from July 23rd.  He is an accomplished international artist with work at MoMA and The Whitney amongst other places, so be sure to check it out.
