My first book, NOTES ON, will be released on March 25th, 2016.


Pre-order your copy here: http://sector2337.com/product/notes-on/

"NOTES ON is an a-chronological studio diary that artist Magalie Guérin’s re-transcribed twice by hand and now in print.
Through that active facsimile Guérin documents her painting process, mapping at once her creative history and the way
that history consistently transforms. Personal, professional, and creative spheres intersect like simultaneous layers in a
painting as accumulated entries capture the shifting gray area between self-doubt, self-awareness, and creative
breakthrough. A recurring and parallel “character” in this journal is a hat shape—an abstract form that Guérin paints over
and over again. Whether anatomical or abstract, the hat shape becomes an anthropomorphic companion as
witness/lover/nemesis to Guérin’s artistic endeavors. Guérin shows us not only that a room of one‘s own is useful,
but what can happen when it is utilized."

Excerpt of Press Release:
"Magalie Guérin has created an abstract model that forms the pictorial focus of her recent paintings. Activated through subtle relationships of color, texture and pattern, the enigmatic shape shifts slightly to inhabit each composition differently. The form may appear soft or rigid, heavy or light, to bulge forward, dissolve into background or push against its own edges."
