Black & White Gallery/Project Space presents Rolling Houses a solo exhibition featuring new work of Spanish-American artist Isidro Blasco where he continues to contemplate private and internal landscapes that have long influenced his practice.
Internationally recognized from the start of his career, Blasco made NYC his hometown and inspiration. The works in the show have a strong sense of places where nothing is certain, except for permanent uncertainty. They provide an immersive experience of constructed escapisms referencing different areas of the city. They reveal the artist's unwavering attachment to his hometown having somehow internalized its contradictions. Blasco does not mean to overcome the genuinely disquieting uneasiness of today's reality, neither criticize the conditions that led humanity there. Instead, he suggests embracing and exploring the hometown's environment, where everything looks familiar, yet nothing is what it is or used to be.
