Marc Le Guen

Born in 1970 - France


1992: license in organism biology (University of Rennes 1).

1994/1995: military service in a training center of naval frame (Ateliers de l' Enfer in Douarnenez).

1995/2003: framework, woodwork, aeronautic maintenance and restoration of an old sawmill to establish a workshop.

“After my studies of biology, I have been attracted by the work of wood and traditional boats. By working a few years in naval frame, I learned more about the wood layout and its implementation.

In 2003, I started realizations of sculptures associating wood and metal. Since then, I privileged the burned wood with stainless steel for their contrast and their graphical aspect.

This association corresponds to the wish of mixing different elements. Several trends are intertwined to make reality and feelings exist.

The forms are defined by elaborating a volume, by aggregating these elements with the concern to reconcile the diversity of the materials registered in the unit of the shape.

The sculptures are often connected to the movement and inspired by elements of the nature, pebbles, seeds … or by technical realizations like some contemporary architectures.

Each realization is an open proposition letting each free to plan his own imagination”..
