In her sculpture, Sayaka Ganz uses reclaimed plastic objects such as discarded utensils as a painter uses brush strokes. She describes her style as “3D impressionism”: The recycled objects appear unified at a distance, but at close proximity, individual objects are discernable. Sculptures in this exhibition include animals in motion that are rich in color and energy.
Ganz was born in Yokohama, Japan, and grew up living in Japan, Brazil, and Hong Kong. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. The Tour of Sayaka Ganz: Reclaimed Creations is produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C., David J. Wagner, Ph.D., Curator/Tour Director.
