Dimensions 90 x117 cm

The Artwork:

This large canvas has as its protagonist Pinocchio saved by the pigeon, but above all by his ability to repent, forgive himself and be reborn. A vision of Pinocchio that represents the initiation of a man to face life. Painting exhibited during the exhibition on Pinocchio at the Museo di Collodi (IT) 2017 at the Maschio Angioino in Naples and at the Istituto Grenoble Napoli (IT) 2018. Work in the catalogue.

The Artist:

Cécile Guicheteau, 1974 Cholet (FR), is a contemporary artist. Graduated in art at the Pivaut institute in Nantes, for years she works in Paris as a decorator for television and collaborates with numerous galleries. In 2008 she published "Tortueuse Fantasy", with Michel Archimbaud, author of the last interviews with Francis Bacon. She has made several exhibitions abroad: Italy, USA, Canada, Japan and the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2016 she realized a permanent exhibition at the Di Tucheng Museum in China after spending 45 days in an artistic residence. In 2017/2018 she exhibited at the Torre dos Cielos gallery in Japan and then became the winner (2019) of the UNESCO Open-Air Museum project, in Praiano, on the Amalfi Coast. Her works are in museums and private collections.

She says about herself: I don't try to be a witness of my time, I don't try to denounce anything, the universe that I express is part of my inner world, from writings or legends. All this comes through me and ends up on the canvas together with what I live. For some time now I have been trying to forget what I have learned in such a way as to let my childish hand guide my work.
