Marie-Ange Daudé is a plastician, a portraitist and a feather artist. Through her unique portraits she expresses her desire for aestheticism and femininity as well as her tendency towards melancholy and nostalgia. The faces are strong, and express a rare emotion. The chosen material, feathers, exacerbates the fragility and feminine softness.
The feeling of transparency of the portrait and its evanescent side is brought by the concept of the work: the feathers are fixed on almost invisible nylon threads, which allow the portrait to be lifted off the support and to appear in levitation. The absence of color enhances emotion and nostalgia. The duvet of the feathers bring a touch of softness to the whole.
