This bird man in in Passage Barrault is bound by gravity. Even with the aid of a parachute he’s flying low to the ground.
In contrast this elegant heron looks light as air, a bird sketched in imagination over a star map.
The artist, Philippe Baudelocque, works in chalk and oil pastel to produce this delicate, textured effect so, exposed to the elements, it’s ephemeral art. This piece in Passage du Moulin des Près, dated 2012, has lasted well.
