“Born in Tunisia in 1954, immigrating to Paris as a child, Guez moved to Los Angeles in 1979 after completing his education and today lives in Jerusalem with his wife, who is also an artist, and their children. Having resided in four countries, conversing in multiple languages, its not surprising that his work is a synthesis of who he is, where he has been and most significantly, that he creates art that communicates in a universal language.
With his domestic-scale, gestural paintings, built up through pronounced marks in oil on canvas, there is both timelessness and immediacy. Each abstract mark is an expression, an expulsion of energy, a statement. Like a Morse code, Guez creates a visual language through mark making, conveying his own personality, psychological state and commentary on the world we live in.”
