French Fancy

Miniature studies of animals, plants and organisms create a strange and superstitious universe within the work of French artist Lyndie Dourthe.

Filigree florals merge alongside stuffed creatures great and small. Fabric specimens, internal structures and carcass remains are combined in visually exciting and highly unusual compositions. Each object is organised, labelled and sorted into boxes or housed within glass domes, all the more emphasising the delicacy and minute scale of each piece.

Once complete I like to imagine the designs are stored within a giant cabinet of curiosities in Lyndie Dourthe’s atelier waiting patiently to be sold to a lucky new owner!
