Anna Blom’s work is a continuous narrative of her own immediate surroundings. It is a deconstruction of the fragile details - the warp and weft - the physical and psychological components of our everyday landscape, using a diaristic method she studies the isolated, overlooked and less-celebrated lapses of time. An act of watching and trying to understand co-existence. The research is an archival process of collecting photographs, sketches, white noise and writing which ultimately is poured into a painting. The multiple layers on the canvas are built up with stains of thin washes using raw pigment and permitting situational debris to flow in. This creates textured, gritty, matt surfaces allowing the materials to explore each other, the colours indicating seasonality, and the debris enhancing an awareness of place of production. The making itself becomes a memory of time and place. Anna Blom is a Swedish born, London-based artist who holds an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art (2022) and a BFA in Painting from UAL Wimbledon (2020). She has curated, led and exhibited across Europe and UK. Recent exhibitions include LUMA Aora & Apsara Gallery, International Women’s Day Auction with Liminal Gallery and ANNIHILATION OHSH Projects. She is a recipient of 2022/2023 Travers Smith Art Programme, Morrison Foerster Art Programme and been Highly Commended in 2023 CSR Art Awards.
