Born into a family of artists, Francis Guerrier ponders the “generational” effect. Six artists span four generations, but the Guerrier hallmark is more than just genes; it’s a feel for the craft that has been passed on from parent to child which has set them on the path to creativity. Francis believes it is because “We all believe in the rigour behind the beauty”. His daughter Marie has taken this to a new level with her technical expertise and sense of composition. They are both passionate about sculpture and have a mutual admiration for the other’s work. Transmission and passion, two words which resonate with both of them. In her sculptures, Marie always finds duality and balance between the materials and the forms, a tranquil harmony and stability. Francis, for his part, marries the majestic and the pure in his truly beautiful compositions. For father and daughter alike, transmission means sharing, and giving and receiving solutions, but underneath it all lies a fundamental love for what they do and a desire to follow their heart. Creating is what makes them tick.
