About Graciela Blancarte.

 

"Mexican-born and Canadian-based artist Graciela Blancarte pours the life of both her cultures into her work. Graciela finds the inspiration for her love of art from her upbringing in Durango, Mexico: a town rich in history, music and art. 

Painting is a way for Graciela to connect two worlds. Prior to her art practice, she felt a palpable fracture between the two cultures. This created the sense that something was missing. Painting has allowed Graciela to ground that sensation, bringing the impression of Durango to Canada.

Graciela  uses nostalgic colours to create bright and vivid pieces which highlight passion and convey emotions. Her painting begins with music, which evokes the connections that allow her to create."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             V.

"Graciela Blancarte nació en Durango, Dgo. México en el seno de una familia de artistas. De formación autodidacta, Graciela eligió en 2009 el abstraccionismo para expresarse; sus cuadros evocan nostalgia, frustración, alegría, tristeza, en un sentido liberan a la autora y nos liberan a nosotros como espectadores. Los colores y la luz que emplea en sus obras son, quizá una reminiscencia de su Durango, en donde el cielo es más azul que en ninguna otra parte del mundo."
