Limited Edition Print - Jasmin Blasco, Untitled, 2014
Jasmin Blasco, a French artist based in Los Angeles, explores music, video, and installation. With a background in music technology, his experimental work often involves collaborative projects. Despite this, Blasco confidently ventured into etching, drawing inspiration from his renowned grandfather, Pablo Picasso.
Blasco's diverse exhibition history includes Cutlog in New York and Paris, the Speak My Language music event in Los Angeles, and involvement with THE NOISE INDEX research platform. Through his interdisciplinary practice, Blasco explores the impact of information saturation and probes the boundaries of art, sound, and temporal expression.
At Villa Lena, Blasco developed a visual score, a navigational blueprint bridging the present and the future. Their project conceptualises the creative process as a gesture through time, with the present as a reflective engine shaping strategies for the future. Referencing musical notation and construction blueprints, Blasco's print captures the anticipation of what lies ahead. The central hand motif is influenced by early notation systems like the Guidonian Hand.
