Francis Guerrier

sculpting artist

Born in 1964 in Marseille, grandson of the painter Francis Montanier, son of the painter Raymond Guerrier and the ceramist Francesca Guerrier, I now live and work in Eygalières. For twenty years I worked as a decorator and scenographer for the Event, theatre, dance, opera and music. Since 2002, I have been dedicated to sculpture. My first pieces on memory integrate light and image. In 2005, I chose the monumental steel sculpture. I also work with aluminium with my “Angel Feathers” from 8 to 15 meters, mounted on springs and movable in the wind, today, my work with metal always consists in the volume setting of flat sheets that I cut but especially that I fold along curved lines. It is the metal that by its own energy, spring and resistance will shape itself and create volume. After having imagined complex shapes, often from the spiral, today in search of the original shapes, my last pieces are inspired by the moon, by the sky descending on the earth.
