Bianca BrandSelf Gaze Culture

R700.00 – R2,500.00

Bianca Brand is an artist and illustrator born and raised in Pretoria, where she is still currently based. She studied photography at the Vega School of Brand Leadership, followed by a BA in Visual Communication at The Open Window Institute, going on to win various awards for her design and illustration work. Of all the disciplines Bianca studied, she has superbly mastered illustration in particular, creating an unforeseen luminous colour palette paired with uncanny and open-ended story board type tableaus. Her interchangeably fluorescent and pale colours depict moments that could be equally evocative of rock art or sci-fi graphic novels. Whatever the tale, it is unquestionably grim in nature, but neon and pastel in hue. ‘Most of my subject matter is quite dark and strange, and I feel that the colours prevent them from becoming scary or downright ugly,’ Bianca says. ‘In this way, I hope that the works intrigue rather than disturb people.’ In Self Gaze Culture, which forms part of the pictorial nerve poster series, Bianca presents a figure caught in a 21st century solipsistic wave.

Pictorial Nerve

pictorial nerve is an ongoing portfolio series conceived and published by The series is broadly focussed on visual cultures establishing a bridge between contemporary art, design, illustration, photography and other cultural manifestations. Similarly, the anatomy of the series is imagined as a hybrid of a poster portfolio, a zine, an artist book and an artwork. It is an exploration of printed matter, the beautiful nexus between image and text, and elicits a playful consideration of how this material can exist within and outside traditional art spaces. The first iteration of the series looks at a new zeitgeist that is somewhat comparable with what was loosely called The Pictures Generation in the late 20th Century. At the time, these artists were defined by their layered adaptions, revealing the fabricated nature of images, with an element of frank social commentary. Now, a younger generation with varied cultural references
and experience offer a parallel but unstudied cross­pollination of activity that spans numerous creative disciplines. In addition, the transition from analogue to digital has generated a refreshing, brazen and sometimes lateral approach towards the pictorial, especially in the Global South.
