Beth Ganz reinterprets the landscape through a process of abstraction and digital production. Up Close and Far Away reveals two distinct perspectives: an aerial view sourced from Google Earth, which is evident in her Grids series, and an intimate, close up portrayal, as exhibited by her Spanish Moss Toiles. Ganz describes her process as a “profound interconnection within the types of beauty, orderliness and harmony that emerge in each form. This intuition of unity affects my approach to materials, leading me to abandon the conventional categorizations of media in favor of an approach that moves fluidly between painting, printmaking, photography and drawing.”Ganz’s depth of line, repetitive imagery and photographic abstraction reveal the poetic structure of landscape forms. Her Spanish Moss and Live Oak Toiles echo the romantic, intimate sentiments of Wave Hill’s magnificent grounds. Her alluring landscapes are often overlaid with patterns from domestic trappings, bringing together the natural and the stylized. The Mountains series offers an abstracted interpretation of rock formations and geological strata. Her work combines the fluidity of form with the structure of geometry.
