Sébastien de Ganay’s almost life-sized full body portraits consist of his trademark folds of plastic that literally create waves of relief—there is a balanced push-pull, background-foreground figure effect that is supported by the luminous white void on which all the figures float. They sometimes read as sculptures. On the other hand, the walls, cubes, cylinders, and circles of de Ganay’s sculptures, with their bright car-paint monochromes and curved or straight geometric picture planes, foreground their viewers almost like the figures in his portraits against their white voids. They sometimes read as paintings. This comprehensive full-color volume of de Ganay’s portraits and sculptures includes an insightful essay on his work, as well as an interview with the artist.
