Collaboration with Stefan Blom
Daniel Blom is a figurative sculptor and conceptual installation artist who works predominantly in plastic, wood and steel. He uses the body, its partialized components, and some inanimate objects as units of visceral and conceptual meaning to describe process and the nature of the site-specific installation space. Detached, reduced and prescribed, the self-referential sculptural form and its attributes contribute to the circumscribed quality of this pure spatial-state where balance is coherent, logical, and relevant to the understanding of the work.
Blom is a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, London. He received a BA (Bibl.) and a BA (Hons.) in History of Art, both from Johannesburg University. His most recent solo show, fencing and the pencil (2014), was at Commune.1. He has previously had a solo show, the ship of things/ study for scribe (2005), at Bell-Roberts Contemporary Gallery. He presently lives and works between Cape Town, London and Kaş, Turkey.
