There is something poetically unannounced in this painting. We hear it before we see it, we listen to it before staring at it.

For a quarter of a second, the ear is quicker than the eye. A quarter of a second is not enough, but that is enough, sometimes, to ask if it is the music that posed for the art or the opposite. Each of these works has a soul, which is as good for the bow sliding on the strings as for the routing of colors towards a style, towards the light. The result is an impression of hybrid and magnetic creation, stretching from the languid complaint of the mourners to the secret clamor of the chasms.

Nicole Pfund's characters are not filiform for no reason. They need at least long legs to prolong their ambiguous humanity into peremptory bestiary. The artist is not wrong, and, in addition, his anthropomorphic gesture does not lack talent. She seems to tell us that it is not the men who invented singing. Birds, and not only them, preceded them in this chapter.

Among adults, and even the elite of quadrupeds, their identity began with singing, while the man, despite its verticalization, had to groan for a long time before only articulating. Nicole's music-loving heads may participate, by their appearance, in the animal kingdom, but they still refer to one of the possible images of the birth of music.

In depth, it may be that still reaches us, in mysterious scansions, the echoes of a distant time or already existed perfect agreements between impulses without words, and their desire to be a voice, a pure moment of the polyphony of the living. In this sense, Nicole Pfund's vision is deliciously accurate, with an immemorial and rhythmic foreknowledge that gives pleasure to those who are imbued with it.
