Ganz Artist Talk

Sayaka Ganz Artist Talk 
November 9, 2017, Beach Musuem of Art
5:30 p.m.

Sayaka Ganz’s sculptures of birds, animals, and marine life incorporate discarded plastic objects that have become dangerous to wild creatures. Her works in this exhibition foreground the need to rethink human use and disposal of objects in a world driven by convenience. Ganz has said, “I try to give new life to discarded objects.…I get my inspiration from nature and from the movement that we find in nature.” She describes her reuse of the found materials as “3D impressionism”: The recycled objects appear like brush strokes, separated at close proximity but visibly unified at a distance.

Ganz will talk about the environmental concerns that motivate her to incorporate discarded plastic objects in her wild life sculpture in “Reclaimed Creations.” Reception to follow.
