A part of the “Magnets” collection was added to the portfolio. These are metal discs, varying in diameter from 10 to 16 centimeters. They come with a detachable magnet, so they can be put on anything metal, or even be attached to clothing or objects as a brooch.
To view click on the images below. Each item has a dozen Magnets pieces, which you can view in the slider gallery for the item.
The Guerraz website has been designed to adapt to the size of the user’s screen or screen resolution. So whether you access the site from a phone, tablet, laptop or desktop, the site layout will adapt.
Very large screens, very high resolution
There is one caveat however: on very large screens (like 27″ monitors for example) you may find that the site shows up too small for comfort when you have your browser maximised.
Fortunately, all modern web browsers have a nifty little trick to help you adjust easily: zooming the website in the browser. This also helps with readability on very high resolution screens.
Zooming with keyboard shortcuts in the web browser
Zoom in: hold down the “Control” key and press “+” (“Command” and “+” on Mac)
Zoom out: hold down the “Control” key and press “-” (“Command” and “-” on Mac).
Reset to 100%; hold down the “Control” key and press “0” (zero) (“Command” and “0” on Mac).
Try it out, you’ll never want to go without it after that!
More images of previously missing works have been unearthed and dusted off for inclusion in the portfolio.
This is the fourth post on this subject, which covers previously missing works images from 2015 to 2017.
“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”
― Andy Warhol
Previously in “From the attic”:
From the attic, part 1 (1990) → (9 works)
From the attic, part 2 (1991-1995) → (30 works)
From the attic, part 3 (1996-2014) → (27 works)
From the attic, part 4 (2015-2017) → (41 works) – this post
So all in all, 107 images of older and missing works have been retrieved by “digging through the attic”.
“How did it get so late so soon?”

More images of older works have been salvaged and prepared for inclusion in the portfolio.
“The past is never where you think you left it.”

This is the third post on this subject, showing previously missing works from 1996 to 2014.
“Time is what keeps everything from happening at once.”
― Ray Cummings, The Girl in the Golden Atom
These works will also be included in the Paintings Gallery and Sculptures Gallery, and of course in the respective Year Galleries. You can view details of these earlier works by clicking on each image below.
Digging through the archives on CD’s, DVD’s, hard drives and in emails, some previously lost images of my early works have been recovered.
“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
The post “From the attic, part 1” covered retrieved images from 1990.
This is the second post in this series: it covers retrieved images from from 1991 to 1995. So these are now included in the portfolio. The works will also be included in the Paintings Gallery and Sculptures Gallery, and of course also in the respective Year Galleries. To view the details of a work, just click on its image.
From the early years of my career (mostly the early 90’s, before the general use of smartphones with decent cameras), few pictures of my works survived. Partly because I did not think much about proper documentation or hiring a photographer every time, partly because of my (in the words of my webmaster) “abysmal textbook artist” administration habits.
“blast from the past”
something that surprises you because you had almost forgotten about it
By going through the image archives on CD’s, DVD’s and hard drives and with the generous help of people who in one way or another acquired my works and sent me a photograph, some early image examples are being gradually uncovered.
I intend to include these (when unearthed) in a post series called “From the attic”. This is the first one of these posts.
You can view the details of these early works by clicking on each image below. The works will also be included in the Paintings gallery.
