Abstraction is Blanchard's form of expression, a way for him to discover his inner self, his "window on the infinite" as he likes to call it. Abstraction is combined with a hyper-realism technique which is a way for him to create forms that are both light and dense. The search for volumes that absorb themselves is at the core of his work. He also wants to capture the light and make it an essential part of his paintings by adding alterations and the color red, which for Blanchard symbolizes life itself. How to materialize the invisible? How to answer with forms, colors and images? These are questions Blanchard constantly deals with in his paintings. The artist has his own vision, made of harmony, distance and elegance. No touch of color, light or substance is added at random on the canvas. His work evokes wide open spaces, the infinite, audacity... and leaves you free to imagine what you want.
