Artist Inspiration: Chris Maynard, Feather Obsessed



Artist Chris Maynard uses feathers of birds from private aviaries and zoos to create these crazy, delicately constructed shadow boxes with intricately carved out feathers. Smaller birds appear to fly off of the feathers, breathing life back in. How insanely beautiful is the peacock within a peacock feather? Maynard’s feather obsession comes from his belief that feathers “mark nature’s pinnacle of achievement: the intersection of function and beauty.”
