Living differently in the world

 

A multi-talented, deep and inspired artist, Stéphane Guiran is a poet, who sculpts his dreams and magnifies ours, with incredible grace, as if he had the gift, the power to intercept and transmit the wonderful pending in our lives.

Sensitive to the fragility and mystery of things, he has the sweetness and delicacy of the wise. Like a subtle dowser, he feels, without searching, waves and vibrations emitted by nature or architecture and perceives the invisible threads that animate the place.

In Chaumont-sur-Loire, the resonances and voices of the stables of the stables, which had once been the studio of an artist, seemed to him to be obvious. This is how he conceived the “nest of murmurs”, where the intrinsic radiation of circular stones mixes with the magnetism of quartz and the song of children, a crucible of beauty and emotion which acts deeply on souls.

Whatever his creations, Stéphane Guiran, who knows how to inhabit the world differently, has the art of making suspended moments arise, of arousing enchantment and of establishing the link with secret laws and the elusive harmony that govern the 'universe.
