Born in Japan and living in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Sayaka Ganz has a BA in printmaking and an MFA in 3D Study with a concentration in sculpture from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
To create her sculptures, Ganz finds discarded objects including plastic utensils, toys, and metal pieces and gives them a second life and a new home..
“The human history behind these objects gives them life in my eyes. My goal is for each object to transcend its origins by being integrated into an animal form that seems alive. This process of reclamation and regeneration is liberating to me as an artist. By building these sculptures I try to understand the human relationships that surround me. It is a way for me to contemplate and remind myself that even if there is conflict right now, there is a way for all the pieces to fit together.”
