Statement : 

The focus of her work is the comprehension of abstraction. Inspired by gradients, structures and contradictions she discovers in her surroundings, she seeks to balance discordance whilst forming dialogues between objects. Bland’s works combine her distinct style of contemporary abstract painting with a playful approach to mark-making, highlighting the interplay between sharp design and lyrical abstraction. Her paintings confirm their self referential narrative through teasing and suggestion - toying with the viewer’s perception of the work’s intention.
