The work chosen for the poster is an oil on canvas entitled ‘The mask, Charles Baudelaire, les fleures du mal’. María del Pino Blasco explains in this regard that “I love Baudelaire, he is an inspiration for me”.
With a degree in Psychology, with studies in Fine Arts, María del Pino Blasco Afonso presents some 45 creations in different formats and techniques in this exhibition.
“The result of this exhibition is the look of a woman, a look that I think is lacking in society. That look is reflected in those things that fascinate me, such as shells. I do not plan when painting. I like to capture gazes and movement,” she notes.
And it is precisely this way of being and creating that connects María del Pino with Baudelaire, with their wanderings through the streets of Paris exploring the urban.
She recognizes herself as an admirer of Fernando Larraz and points out that the exhibition that we will be able to contemplate in the Círculo, the second that she faces alone after one carried out recently in La Palma, is also “the result of my life trajectory”.
In this vital trajectory, María del Pino Blasco speaks of her mother as an exceptional being. “She was a fighting woman,” he says of her.
