    "Peindre le Mont Blanc".
    Chromatic performance at the top of the Mont Blanc march 1986.
    Digital shiny edition.

    Domus, June 1986

    The ascent of Mont-Blanc was for many years the dream of all mountain-climbers. Recently the dream has become reality and the climb is regarded as rather straightforward. But now, Michel Guéranger has made Mont-Blanc into a new star, a star of the visual arts. Mont-Blanc, or should it be Mont Icecream ? (Or Mont Cointreau to give a mention to the firm who has sponsored the whole operation).

    The mighty and immaculate rock dominating Europe has been transformed into a gigantic « cassata » icecream. Gueranger has created a masterpiece of free colour associations, a huge multicoloured icecream, ephemeral yet stupendously spectacular. To paint the roof of Europe, to colour the snow with primary colours – it seemed an impossible challenge, like Jacob’s ladder or the Tower of Babel. A challenge requiring an artist who is also a highlytrained technician.

    And now the helicopter passes over the site of this metamorphosis in action. The photographer directs the camera to catch aspects that will be the only surviving evidence of this moment of unrepeatable poetry. « Domus » now prints a few fragments of this painting of high aesthetics and high endeavour – as a record, and also to ensure qood luck.

    For, when a challenge is nobly answered, even the Gods may spare us a momentary smile.

Michel Gueranger

France Born in: 1941 Emerging artists

Michel Guéranger, born in 1941, lives and works in Paris. Michel Guéranger is a painter, a graphic artist and a photographer. Ever since the 1960, he's worked on a rich and varied work shown in many exhibitions at galleries around Europe, the United States and South America. It is also found in public and private collections.

The artist has constantly been exploring the problematic of space, as first of all he focused on its laws' and perception dynamics within the group Space. He then turned to the temporal dimension of velocity (in cooperation with the automotive as well as the aerospace industries) and moved on to the ephemerality of natural supports such as mountains (painting on snow on the Mont Blanc). Experimenting has enabled him to deepen his partial approach of the universe and to emphasize the harmony between the cosmic levels: from infinitely big (paintings and aerial photographies) to infinitely small (macrophotographies of water metamorphoses).

In his latest works he has accomplished a fertile confrontation between his own idea of aesthetics and the qualities of water. Is water a universe in itself or is it confined to its own limits and thus a part of the universe? Is water observed from an outer place or when diving? Is it a distant halo or a closeby spot, running at high speed or set in its eternal trace?

The art of Michel Guéranger constantly arouses questions about the situation and the moment of looking, about the nature of reality and the place of Man within.
