Blake Blanco: We All Dream
Blake Blanco (Seattle) presents paintings, monotypes, and sculptures mostly started before, yet impacted by, the COVID-19 pandemic. This series reflects our lives as engaged from mostly indoors and virtually, rather than in person, physically. Blanco views life through a surrealistic lens exploring religion, mythology, and the side effects of a societal landscape dominated by social media. Blanco’s mixed media works reveal impacts to the human psyche, with scenes from the serene to the bizarre. Attached objects (collage, found, and household items) heighten both the familiarity with, and emotions felt, while engaged in Blanco’s world.
