The publisher's said "These amazing tables are more than just practical places to set a coffee cup: they're inspired works of art in a wide array of styles and forms, from pieces that showcase masterful woodwork to ones that feature alternative materials and edgy aesthetic sensibilities. Every table features breathtaking craftsmanship, constant surprise, and striking beauty."
Guarino draws from Asian, African, and Egyptian aesthetics as well as other influences. Some of his pieces have an Art Deco influence, others very contemporary. To best describe Glen's art is to say it is very much his own style. His furniture is inspired by natural forms and created with age-old woodworking techniques. He carves sensual and organic shapes, often using rescued lumber from fallen trees for furniture for corporate and residential clients specifically to meet their needs. He considers furniture to be a form of art; when a piece is not in use it should enhance one's work or living space He also creates pieces for gallery and museum exhibits.
Glen Guarino recently returned from The International Exposition of Sculpture Objects & Functional Art (SOFA) in Chicago. He is currently showing in Signature Artist Exhibition at Noyes Museum of Art in New Jersey. Signature Artist Membership is a highly competitive membership awarded to an established professional artist whose original work exemplifies the highest caliber of artistic standards. He also has three pieces at Works in Wood in New Hope Arts in PA.
Glen Guarino will be exhibiting at Art Connections 8 in George Segal Gallery in New Jersey in 2012. In February 2012, he will be a guest speaker and exhibitor at WoodExpo 2012 hosted by New England Home Show, Boston, MA where he will demonstrate several techniques he uses to make his curvilinear furniture.
