David Blandy: Background




In David Blandy’s latest film a pair of figures walk and converse through a series of animated landscapes. The 16-bit representations are of Blandy and his father, John, discussing their respective art practises, wandering past snow covered temples, rainforest and ruined cities, images at once recognisable as the virtual territory of David’s practise.

 

Blandy’s on going examination of his cultural and personal influences manifests here as an interaction with John Blandy, to co-author a series of works. John Blandy is a landscape artist, and a graduate of St Martins School of Art and the Royal College of Art, with a commitment to drawing from life. This has led to projects such as ‘Following a Lime Tree’, which involved depicting a single Lime tree over 2500 times, documenting its daily development.
