About The Artist

 

ReneGuerciagrew up in Oyster Bay, New York, on the North Shore of Long Island.Always drawn to the water, she summered throughout her life in Southampton, New York.

Rene is a natural talent.?While taking some art classes in school, she never formally trained hence her instinctive, naturalistic grounding.In addition to painting and sketching, at the age of 12, she was already a published writer of poetry.

Fluent in several different media and technique, Guercia paints in oils, acrylic and watercolor, as well as creating numerous digital pieces.

Each series of Ren?e?s artwork comes, in its truest sense, from deep inspiration.Things affect me,she confides, And it is with my art that I express this -- always with something that somehow touches my soul.

Drawing from the expansive strength and beauty of the ocean, Renee is a longtime surfing enthusiast who loves the water -- and this is what inspired her Ocean Series.

The Butterfly Seriesis the result of a deeply personal and completely unexpected -- emotional connection for Rene.

Renee's father, Joseph Guercia was, in the 1970's and 80's, considered one of the largest installers of athletic facilities in the world.The lead contractor who installed the tennis courts at the US Open, he was also prominently involved in the rebuild of the Olympic Stadium in Greece, The Worlds Fair in New York, and other international projects.

In early 2010, Mr. Guercia was about to begin an athletic installation in Haiti.On January 12, he had just arrived at the Hotel Montana in Port au Prince along with a crew of architects and construction executives; the same date as one of the worlds most catastrophic earthquakes. Rene spoke to her father minutes before the earthquake hit.Tragically, Mr. Guercia was among the 122 Americans, and scores of others, killed that day.

My sister, brother and I were beyond devastated,Rene recalls. Our world was absolutely upended, and my sister and I spent countless hours talking about our Dad.As spring and summer approached we would sit in our yard by the pool and have long, deep talks about our father.Each and every time we had these heart rending conversations, we would always see butterflies!They would fly and flutter across our pool and all over the perimeter of our yard.

From then on whenever we saw butterflies, we called them Dad.

I consider The Butterfly series my most endearing pieces of work -- as each and every one of them comes from the deepest place in my heart.

Interestingly -- and this is something Ren?e didn?t know at the time -- in many cultures the butterfly is associated with the soul.In Greek mythology, Psyche is represented in the form of a butterfly.Fittingly, Psyche is forever linked with love as she and Eros (the Greek god of love, also known in Roman myth as Cupid) shared an endlesslypassionate bondtogether -- both hopelessly in love with one another.

The purpose of my work is to create an inspiration of nature and serenity.Each original piece is its own unique expression through color and technique.The common denominator amongst those who admire my work is ethereal nature of each piece.

Renee's work is presently in Chase Edwards Gallery, Bridgehampton,New York and will be in Ross Contemporary Gallery, Chicago, Ill. as of this fall. Her work has been sold all over the United States and in several countries around the world.

Renee resides in Southeast Florida and Southampton, New York.

 

About Artwork:

The inspiration for my work is explained in my bio. I have been an artist and designer my entire life. My love for the butterfly in my pieces comes from the universal understanding of the spiritual nature of the butterfly.
