| Artist : raymond guerrier

( 1920-2002). Knight of Arts and Letters.

It is as a poet that Guerrier paints the real, serious and mysterious. Beyond the primitive plastic vocabulary that he claims, this earthy man is carried by a tenderness that revives the constituent phenomena of our original sensibility. His true nature is resourced there. With his travels to Spain, Sardinia, Greece, Morocco, Jordan and Israel, he deepens his dialogue with the sensual impulses found in nature, the geometric masses, the rhythms that generate their own spatiality for a plane space. Guerrier achieves the prodigy of projecting himself into his painting and bringing it to that extreme point of frontal construction for a communion that annihilates all speculative intellectual temptation.

Raymond Guerrier has created a language in his own image. If over the years, his painting tends more and more towards abstraction, the latter, which is all relative, is so through the frank lines that weave the elementary order of architecture, stones, arid soil, flowers and fruits, these earthly foods from which the artist makes us touch painting. The light reveals the vibrations in the sense that the chromatic relationships work to reveal the form in its specificity. The unctuous material betrays a lyricism whose modest palette is careful not to betray the accuracy of the modulations. The apparent austerity calls for the fervour that emerges from the subtly braided contours, to delimit sound spaces under the assaults of the coloured flat tints. Soon black and white will explore, alone, the world. Light and shadow have this taste of eternity approached by the magic of painting alone. Like the flame rekindling the brazier, the melody burns the pictorial substance with a warmth that is typical of that which inhabits Guerrier. Like Prometheus he ravishes fire and lava. Poorly concealed under a tamed harshness, Warrior’s modesty is swept away by his propensity for fraternity, whose view of beings and nature is rich with his confidence in the future.

With certainty, Guerrier has tracked down the sun. His daily rebirth is the pledge of the permanence of life. From appearances where our illusions go astray, Guerrier has preserved the essence of everything, for his sole presence in the world].
