Linda Ganstrom’s Figures / Non-Anorexic, Non-Victoria’s Secret


This life-size ceramic piece is by Linda Ganstrom, who  I met her in January at the Governor’s Inaugural.  I’d juried her work into the art exhibit there, and knew immediately I wanted to carry it, it was just a matter of the right time coming along.  Well the right time’s arrived.

This work is titled Standing Shannon, finished in what Linda calls a Brown Fossil Texture.  I like the way it coarsely celebrates women, avoiding the  whole bizarre thing of the Victoria’s Secret image–an impossible standard that is being set by anorexic 18-year-olds who soon enough won’t be able to meet it themselves.

Anyway, have already had a law firm inquire about it.  Didn’t expect that.
