The grace and beauty of birds in flight has inspired a great variety of artistic interpretations, but perhaps none are as unique as Quebec artist Eric Tardif’s. His wood sculptures capture the elegant and graceful movements of birds through abstract expressions.
As Eric himself explains, “Each of the pieces I create is produced to reveal the intricate poetry of bird life in its many forms. I have always aimed, in my interpretation and production of art, to render into sculpture the sacred space of a secular world.”
