Biography

Bianca MacCall’s work explores the emotional emptiness of public space. Her chosen scenes are recognisable or reminiscent of places that exist, but are meant to be dream-like and unsettling, familiar yet surreal, designed to evoke a half forgotten memory. They are devoid of figures so that the viewer becomes the main protagonist in the witnessed drama. Sometimes the landscape is observed from the street, at other times it could be from a train window or car windscreen, always the viewer is moving through their surroundings, experiencing the detritus of urban life.

 

MacCall graduated from Arts University Bournemouth in 2015 with a Ba in Illustration. Followed by the Drawing Intensive at The Royal Drawing School in Shoreditch, and then Advanced Etching at Spike Island, Bristol. Key art prizes include the Under 25’s Ironstone Art Prize 2016, Bath Society of Artists Under 25’s Prize, 2017, and the Alan Cassé Print Prize, 2019.

 

She has exhibited widely since graduating. Recent highlights include the Royal West Academy 168 Annual Open, the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair, and the Jackson’s Painting Prize 2022.
