Zander Blom currently lives in Johannesburg. He works in painting, drawing, assemblage, sculpture, and photography to explore the development of modernism in Africa. Projects often include a site - specific installation that is photographed and then destroyed. Blom prints images in editions of one to mimic the originality of painting and sculpture. His book The Drain of Progress – A Catalogue Raisonné was published in 2007 to accompany his first “retrospective” exhibition.
