<p> Gantner was born in 1948 in Seoul, South Korea. As a very young child, he was attracted to color and form. By the age of 12 he was attempting to recreate his universe through the medium of paint. Gantner is primarily a self-taught artist. His passion for the Impressionists and the Post-Impressionists was responsible for his move to France. This allowed him to freely study their work and to explore their universe. The majority of Gantner&#39;s paintings are set in Provence and the Mediterranean. The artist&#39;s fascination with quaint mountain villages with their narrow, winding streets becomes a perfect vehicle for the true subject of his work&#39;s solitude. Gantner&#39;s paintings are visual records of absence. This theme is reinforced through the artist&#39;s use of confined luminous and shadowed spaces that are defined and contained by vertical walls of stone. Even when the painting is not of a narrow village street, solitude and absence are still present.</p>
