More About Sayaka Ganz's Reclaimed Creations

On View March 2 - May 4

Sayaka Ganz, born in Yokohama, Japan, utilizes reclaimed plastic objects like brush strokes, which appear visibly unified at a distance, though separate at close proximity. She describes her style as “3-d impressionism.” Sculptures in this exhibition include recent work depicting animals in motion which are rich in color and energy that create an illusion of form.

From the Artist:

My work is also about perceiving harmony, even in situations that appear chaotic from the inside. When observing my sculptures up close, one might see gaps, holes and items being held on only by small points; step away, however, and the sculptures reveal the harmony created when the objects are aligned to the same general (but not identical) direction. Similarly, it is important to gain perspective by stepping back from current problems and look at the larger picture. Then one can perceive the beauty and patterns that exist. I tend to be very analytical about problems, but when I look too hard and closely at the details, all I see are gaps and differences of opinions. When I step back, I can see that although we may approach the problem from different angles, we often have larger goals in common.
