Biography

Guy Walter is a French artist born in Mulhouse in 1965. The choice of Altuglas (a material close to plexiglass) for his sculptures is obvious to him.

This luminous material, soft to the touch like a silk velvet, never obstructs the eye or the horizon.

When the artist approaches a work, he knows nothing yet about the sculpture to come, only the desire to create inhabits him. The first step is to make a drawing, the forms come to life on a white sheet of paper. Then, the artist imagines and creates the volumes by cutting in the transparency. 

In his assembly cabin, sheltered from dust, he arranges the Altuglas sheets and creates the shapes, sculpts the interactions between transparency and color, carves them and then polishes them.

When the work is finished, air bubbles capture the material, light takes possession of the work and travels through it ad infinitum.
