Jo Ganter is a visual artist. She has been based in Glasgow since the early 1990s having moved to Scotland to study art in Edinburgh in 1983. She works with traditional and new media to produce original limited edition etchings, relief prints, and film animations. Ganter teaches at Edinburgh College of Art and was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy in 2004. Her images move from ambiguous abstract pieces that suggest a sense of real space and light, through a kind of ambiguous representation to pure abstraction. While each suite of images is very different, the artist always works in series and consistently references grids and planes of colour or tone that move parallel to the picture surface creating a shallow depth.
