The Dentist Le Dentiste  

NOTES: The Dentist Paquita Gutiérrez was scared to death of dentists. For the last few days she has been tortured by a tooth. At first, she was hoping that it would simply go away, then she tried all the pain killers in the medicine cabinet. After 3 days, she went to see Carmen, her neighbor who did talking therapy. After 5 days, and not being able to stand it anymore, she made an appointment with the eminent dentist, the doctor Salomon Mimran, whose reputation was the talk of Paris. Paquita, her jaw deformed by an enormous abscess, sat down in the dentist’s chair as if it were the electric chair. Octor, ‘is it goin to ‘urt? asked Paquita, her words deformed by the inflammation. No madam, you won’t feel a thing, lied the doctor, you are in good hands. Let’s see, open up and we will look at this infected molar. Ehh….’is alwedy open said Madame Gutiérrez. At the fourth shot, the anesthesia began to take effect. She had the impression that her tongue was a piece of rag. She wanted to say something, but only could utter some guttural sounds. The doctor thought that it was going to be easy, but when the second pair of pliers broke in his hands, he began to have his doubts. Relax, everything is going fine lied again the doctor as he put his foot on the left shoulder of his patient to gain better leverage. Paquita Gutiérrez regretted not having made her will. After 40 minutes of struggle, and after a super human effort, the doctor managed to extract the rebel tooth. With pride he studied it attentively and ….. began to feel drops of sweat drip down the back of his neck. Let’s see, open up… said the doctor who shuddered when he saw that the tooth he held in his pliers was a pre-molar in perfect health.

Guillermo Forchino bio

From the early 1980's, Guillermo Forchino experiments with various materials to create works of art in volume. This research began at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Rosario, Argentina and then continued with three years of studies in art restoration and conservation at the Sorbonne University in Paris, France. During his studies he discovered and mastered classic techniques and materials. After completing his studies in Paris, he returned to Argentina where he directed the Juan B. Castagnino atelier of art restoration for the Museum of Beaux-Arts of Rosario. It was during this period that Forchino began creating figures made from wrapped bands of cloth where the visible parts of the body (head and hands) were made from wax and paper maché colored with natural pigments. From the end of the 1980's, Forchino chose poly resins to create figures and scenes that resemble the world of comic strip and cartoon characters. They are typically unusual and humorous subjects such as a family leaving on vacation in an overloaded car with flat tires or a tired, old American pick-up truck from the 1950's. He has used other modes of transportation such as boats, planes and motorcycles and has even used a bathtub for a military dictator. His characters are always handled with humor and finesse and given a soul. Guillermo Forchino lives and works in Paris in his workshop two steps away from the Pere Lachaise cemetery. The Comic Art of Guillermo Forchino is now available for a larger group of art lovers in the form of limited edition, numbered series. Found only in specially selected stores, each piece is identified by a numbered stamp on the bottom. It comes wrapped in the newspaper "The Forchino Times" along with the autobiography of Forchino and pictures of his collection. A certificate of authenticity completes the package.
