Guillaume Pinard’s oil paintings draw from childhood. He creates radiant, vivid, bright motifs. In a willingly schoolish way, he frames them in elementary, narrow perspectives. He isolates them in a sort of container without wrapping, a box, open surely not by accident, to reveal the “Oh, sorry! Me, that is this, too!" of their hidden nature. Whether they are a solar rabbit drinking the brew from a headless body, a proud well-hung horse, a virgin fiercely intending to remain so, or a vase with balls, the figures of Guillaume Pinard reveal his obsession with readability.
