Biography and art, auction, artworks, interview, statement, website:
Zander Blom was born in Pretoria in 1982 and currently lives in Johannesburg. Working as an artist since 2002, Zanders physical output includes painting, drawing, printmaking, installation and photography (primarily as a means to document the development of his physical works)…
Zander Blom is a Johannesburg-based artist who utilizes painting, drawing, assemblage sculpture, and, crucially, photography, to interrogate received ideas about creative endeavour and Modernism in Africa. Typically, Blom creates modular units of mark, shape and form in paint, printmaking and assemblage, which are configured, photographed, reconfigured and photographed again. These photographs are always staged in Blom's shabbily chic Brixton home, usually in the corners between the pressed ceiling and the white walls…
His work has been exhibited locally and internationally in both solo and group exhibitions. Zander's first book, "The Drain of Progress" – a Catalogue Raisonné, was launched on 20 September 2007 along with a major exhibition at Rooke Gallery that closed in December 2007.
