Peter Genßler’s pictorial works deliberately pop away from the restrictiveness of two dimensions, and yet they’re more classical than “pop.” Mingling a background in graphic design with painting and fine art generally, Genßler’s works have a sculptural quality about them, and his woodblock work Ignatius v. Loyola is no exception to this. This work realizes a third dimension that ordinary pictorial means—certainly those of pencil on paper—cannot. What’s more, it has pronounced classical flare, as though in its bulky material, it evidences a historic time that is not our own.
