Ganseman’s paintings and sculptures take as their subject matter moments of daily life – encounters between family members, still lives of household objects, reclining figures. In their vivid attention to the factual and the everyday, Ganseman’s pieces achieve a paradoxical abstraction that connects them to timeless pursuits in the visual arts, from compositional balance to allegorical meaning. Ganseman works across a range of 2 and 3D mediums, including wood bas-relief and ceramics. This technical proficiency allows the artist to amplify the relationship between means of representation and possible meanings elicited by the works, beyond the visible and sensual. Informed as much by tradition as by contemporary concerns with the social, Ganseman’s practice occupies a singular space, at once aesthetically and conceptually arresting.
