Carmela Blanco studied drawing and painting with Kazu Takeda. Later, in the workshop of the renowned sculptor, Ricardo de la Serna, she would find in sculpture another way of expressing herself. Her work was defined by the famous architect, Justo Solsona, as “construction of the mind and the spirit”. For her works she uses materials that she recycles, such as metal, wood, what once was something else. She reinvents it and creates a harmonious work with a very good use of space and volume. Her sculptures achieve movement with the right dynamic tension, one of the main attributes of the work to represent the true essence.
