Feathers in Flight

With precision tools, American artist Chris Maynard cuts out and sculpts images from feathers:

feathers are structural wonders, serving many functions. they also suggest important universal themes. feathers are my medium. they are an ultimate achievement of nature and a pinnacle of wonder. after feathers perform their functions on birds, they are molted yearly but keep their beauty and complexity. I want to show feathers in a different light, off the bird.  I enjoy highlighting aspects of a feather's form, pattern or color. if I am successful, I hope to convey some intimate sense of the bird that grew the feathers...feathers are one of life's perfect wonders; with this in mind, the three dimensional forms, colors, and shapes are preserved as they were on the birds they came from.
