Imagine

R. Guy Pilon
From March 15th to July 5th, 2020

Unveiling a rich and luminous palette of colors, the paintings of R. Guy Pilon show strong and vibrant contrasts materializing enigmatic figures which transport the observer into playful, poetic or dramatic universes.

Profiles, faces, animals, highlighted or dressed up camouflaged by the artist, are revealed and give free rein to the imagination to invent stories and secrets.

The painter gives the spectator the space necessary to interpret te painting and see elements appear unexpected at first sight.

R. Guy Pilon was born in 1928 in Montreal. At the age of eight, he made a remarkable debut in drawing. For having caricatured his teacher, he receives the punishment of reproducing in pastel a Christmas card representing a winter scene. The professor, amazed by the talent of his young student, pushes him to orient himself towards the art of painting. He then receives from his parents his first set of oil paintings.

Following studies at the Ballantyne School of Commercial Art, he continued his process at the “École des Beaux-Arts” of Montreal.

He worked for more that twenty years as an illustrator and painter decorator for the City of Montreal, making posters, models, decorations, murals and many others for the “Théâtre de la Roulotte” by Paul Buissonneau, the “Jardin des Merveilles”, the Aquarium, the Planetarium , the Botanical Garden, the Angrignon Park and the Biodôme.

When he retired in 1994, he devoted himself entirely to his painting and produced more than 1,200 canvas. Some were selected for international exhibitions and won prizes. He took part in exhibitions organized by the Circle of painters and sculptors of Quebec and his paintings were presented in several galleries. He had many solo exhibitions which the proceeds were donated to charity.

The artist passed away in 2012 at the age of eighty-four
