The plastic work of Edison Blas has been defined as opening “the doors of a biting and unusual imaginary and with enough plastic force to impose his most personal stamp. His painting is not a cabinet of gruesomeness, although the spectator perceives a certain degree of cruelty, ugliness or a stable of taboo stereotypes. Rather, his plastic work possesses the magnetization of a complex reading that can be defined as “a wasteland of mirrors” under the axiom: painting knows who we are.”
It has been said of Edison Blas’ artistic trajectory that “he explores, exhibits and demonstrates a constant activity in art, from watercolor pieces with libidinous colors and contained poetry, to the multiplicity of lines and colors that blur enormous faces that look like large heads of pre-Columbian cultures that observe everything. Living heads and dead heads that bring us closer to the ancestral, with a modern touch, with tints and airs typical of Mexico”.
In the series Los Rostros del Temperamento, exhibited at the Galería Parroquial de la Villa de Etla, the painter returns to the charge with a nourishing lymph that exhibits human nature in its most intimate, most sensitive and most chaotic fibers.
