Zander Blom creates photographs derived from constructed paper installed throughout his London studio recalling Modernist abstraction as demonstrated by Mondrian and Schwitters. The crisp and jagged explosions of shape and color cascade along the nooks and crevices of corners and in-between spaces of ceiling and walls, creating disorienting movement and illusion.
Blom’s work is reminiscient of Fred Sandback, Sol Lewitt, and constructivist aesthetics in addition to the artist’s interest in incorporating contemporary art with Modernism. The potential lack of conceptual elements and an escapist mode of abstraction ignites the tension between physical space and non-functional form.
The artist’s process oriented practice involves creating structures that are configured then re-configured into photographic imagery.
