Statement

Since the early 1990s Eléonore Pironneau has been using painting to transpose the emotional, psychological, sensual and spiritual richness of human experience. Not seduced by the search for virtuosity, she uses painting in a playful and honest spirit of experimentation, looking for simple, but poetically powerful forms and developing their suggestive and metaphorical potential.
For Pironneau, it is also through the various forms of correspondence between the arts that this poetry can best emerge. Having taught visual semantics, she has acquired a deeper understanding of the common structure of the different art forms. And, after a slow process of maturation as a painter she has recently begun to realize a long-standing desire to work with music and musicians.
