The Artist Says:


 
Growing up as the sixth consecutive generation of artists in my family has given me a unique opportunity to build on a strong legacy while injecting my own conscious connection to the observable world.  Although I come from a long line of illustrators, painters, sculptors, and fine art instructors, I create my art not out of obligation, but from passion, an inner need to present my thoughts and skills.  Continuing my family heritage as a professional artist and instructor adds to the fulfillment I get through expressing my creativity.      
Through my training at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, Maryland, I have developed skills that allow me to capture my subjects whether I have an idea I want to express, a narrative, or just a good model, set of objects, or scene.   When I am inspired to paint, I choose which media best suits the subject I want to convey: drawing media, watercolor, oils, or clay.  My desire to work in a wide variety of media also allows me to take on any commission, even if the patron has a preference of material.   
I paint to connect myself to the external world with observations of form and color; pushing to create an illusory reality from the object, person, or scene.  I thrive on painting, drawing, and sculpting from life, not just to replicate, but to exaggerate values, color intensity, color temperatures, and design.  I want the viewers of my work to be attracted from across the room, and hold their attention when they are up close with details and subtle nuances.   While most of my work has an intrinsic meaning to me, I aim to please my audience with beauty and skill in execution whether or not they interperate its internal significance the way I intended.

Biography


 
Biography:
Hans Guerin’s bold exaggerations of life are presented in an array of genre including still-life, figure, animal subject, and  pure landscape. Mr. Guerin’s eclectic portfolio relates his keen observations of his reality into artwork. To implement into his drawings and paintings, Hans creates an array of hand-crafted materials including his substrates, ground pigment, and medium.
 
Hans Guerin’s hard work has rewarded him with his acceptance into and awards from some of the most exclusive international and domestic exhibitions.  Images and articles featuring Mr. Guerin’s artwork have been included in many major Books and Magazines. Outside of the juried exhibitions, original Guerin oils can be found at the prestigious Dog and Horse Fine Art and Portraiture in Charleston, SC, Marine Arts Gallery in Marblehead, MA, and the gallery of the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, MD.
 
While born into a family that made him among the sixth consecutive generation of artists, Mr. Guerin did little artwork until after earning his Bachelor’s degree from Salisbury University in 2000. He then injected his lust for knowledge and perseverance into his family’s Atelier, the Schuler School of Fine Arts. There, Hans was taught a multi-disciplinary approach requiring him to learn the interconnectivity of the various fine art media and learned to fashion the most suitable materials in their execution from scratch.  Currently, Hans Guerin acts as a teacher and Assistant director at the Schuler School. As an artist and instructor of acclaim, Hans exudes the qualities taught to him and extends them with experiments in artistic expression and technique.
