Synopsis

Germaine Derbecq, the French artist, introduces the sculptures that Martín Blaszko produced during the previous fifteen years, emphasizing the artist’s perseverance in his quest for a structured form of visual expression in which the planes intercept each other and angles are used to shorten the distances between the planes. Derbecq also mentions finding a lyrical gist in Blaszko’s work.

Annotations

Martín Blaszko was born in Berlin, Germany, in 1912 and settled in Argentina in 1939. There he met Carmelo Arden Quin and joined the Madí group, which was part of the Argentine Concrete art avant-garde. Later in his life, Blaszko’s expression took the form of sculpture, painting, and drawing, and his plastic poetics prone toward the monumental.
 
French artist Germaine Derbecq was married to Pablo Curatella Manes. She served as an art critic, particularly for Le Quotidiene [The Daily] newspaper; she founded Artinf magazine with Silvia de Ambrosini and Odile Baron Supervielle, becoming a great promoter of the arts, organizing many exhibitions
