In addition to their cinematographic composition and their pictorial qualities, François Bard’s works are remarkable for the unsettling atmosphere they create. Hidden behind their hoods, these youngsters play a sort of hide-and-seek, refusing to reveal their personalities. Quasi-hyperrealist, these oils on canvas or paper show amazing refinement in the textures of the clothes and skin tones. 

"I like it when a human figure triggers something in the onlooker," says François Bard. But nevertheless without imposing too much. Hence the fact that I often avoid faces - showing the subjects’ backs and suggesting more than I actually describe. I try to find the myth in the commonplace. It is almost a doctrine for my everyday life."
