Zachary Eastwood-Bloom is a London-based artist whose innovative and highly original work explores the blurring boundary between the digital and material worlds in the 21st Century. Zachary uses the most up to date technology, such as 3D printing and video, in conjunction with age old techniques and processes such as wood working, bronze casting and ceramics to examine our increasing relationship with digitalisation. Constantly evolving and experimenting with different materials and different subject matter, his work ranges from vast wallpieces and architectural commissions to intricate figurative heads that are a modern take on classical sculpture.
“We inhabit two worlds in parallel. Two different universes that equally follow the laws of physics; one material, with mass and volume, and the other a mathematical construct assembled from binary information.”
Zachary graduated with a BA Hons from Edinburgh College of Art and an MA from the Royal College of Art in 2010. He has exhibited with the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal British Society of Sculptors, The V&A, the National Trust and undertaken commissions for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad and Aviva. Zachary has also recently been awarded the Jerwood Makers Commission and has just embarked on a year-long residency with the Pangolin Bronze Foundry.
