“Man is the measure of all things: of things that are, that they are; of things that are not, that they are not.” -Protagoras (On Truth)
Attractive and worrying are two adjectives that suit well the work that David Blazquez presents in the Fotómata gallery, converting the space into into an environment that seems to transcend further away from reality.
Who has never once had the feeling of being watched by something or someone when they are alone in a room. The table, the dresser, even a lamp go from being inanimate objects to ghostly observers that scrutinise our presence. Or perhaps it is the other way round? The dream like and surreal vision of reality seen from the objective of the photographer, transforms the already inert bodies devoid of any sign of life, into the decorative art that accompanies our daily life.
Artists before have been tempted to convert the human body into the prop of a suggestive interior design of fantasies. Among the most intimate are the proposals of Briton Allen Jones in the late seventies, with an aesthetic that submerges us in the imaginarium of Pop Art and which in Europe shows much more inclination to the erotic obsession than in the american context. Fetishism and the sadistic connotation of Jones remits a universe that questions the spectator in a very direct way and perhaps, ironizes on the limitations of eroticism in contemporary society.
David Blázquez does not try to question the public in his work . In any case it is more an exercise of introspection and the intention of representing onself as individual transformed into object- Two elements are clarifiers: the nude and the self portrait. The first is thats which submerges us most in the Kingdom of Morpheus where the absence of prejudices allows, with the verisiilutude of photographic language, to use the nude as a freedom alien to the hindrances of the moral , to decorum or socially established. The protagonism of the artist , is more revealing still. We are always the leading actor in our dreams. Sometimes we don´t distinguísh the face of who shapes it until we notice it is ourselves.
And deep down we are capable of interpreting every role. Our image multiplies and in an incredible way transforms this object that observes our own life: in the measure of all things.
