Micro sculptures of birds by Marie Cohydon.
I love birds for their esthetic grace, and also because they are freed from a certain weightlessness!
Carving under a microscope means that every little tool like a needle becomes huge and a danger for the sculpture in progress. The size of these birds sculptures varies between 1 and 4 mm.
Paint an eye, I risk at any moment to engulf my sculpture with my painting.
There are several delicate steps in my work : placing the beak of a bird for example , i can start it again 10 or 20 times.
Sometimes I can even block for a week on a detail because it is too small .
It is the art of impossible, that’s why I like it , it’s an exercice of control of frustrations, and it works ! everything gets easier after that!
I have started this work a few years ago, I have made a school art in France when i was young.
