ABOUT THE ARTIST
Zachary Eastwood-Bloom’s practice has mainly explored the blurring boundary between the material and the digital but more recently has developed to encompass wider notions of human development, not just digital but a wider arc from the scientific to the mythological. This research ranges notions of classical ideas, gods that represent the planets of the Solar System, Plato and the platonic solids all in relation to what we now know or think we know. Zachary works a lot with digital processes in relation to somewhat traditional materials such as ceramic, wood, marble and bronze.
Zachary Eastwood-Bloom lives in and works in Glasgow and London. He graduated from Edinburgh College of Art BA Hons in 2004 before completing a MA at the Royal College of Art, London in 2010. Zachary has exhibited with the V&A museum, The Royal Academy of Art, The National Trust, Siobhan Davies Dance and was recently awarded the Jerwood Makers Award 2015. Zachary is the Pangolin Bronze Foundry artist in residence 2016 and is working toward a major solo show in 2017. In 2010, Zachary co-founded Studio Manifold; a collective of nine artists and designers who founded a studio in an east London railway arch.
