ART INSPIRATION - SAKAYA GANZ

“If we value our resources we will waste less.” This is the main philosophy of the Artist Sakaya Ganz. She grew up with the belief that all things in the world have spirits. Ganz feels sad to every discarded and abandoned objects she sees. So she decided to use these items primarily plastics and scrap metals to create some beautiful sculptures. She manipulates and assembles them like a brush strokes to create a three-dimensional painting usually in animal forms with a sense of movement and self-awareness.

 “One of the important tasks for artists of our time is to bring more of the natural world back into people’s lives, especially in urban areas. When we encounter the true wonders of nature, the beauty we behold transcends our intellects and reaches directly to our hearts. I desire a similar response from viewers of my work; to provoke a re-examination of our relationship to the natural world. 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.” Sakaya Ganz.
