Chris May­nard: Fir­ma­ment 2017, marabou stork feath­ers

Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS -

Ger­ald Peters Gallery, 1005 Paseo de Per­alta, 505-954-5700 Artist Chris May­nard uses eye-surgery tools to cut shapes from feath­ers and ar­range them into shad­ow­box tableaux of birds in flight that play with shadow, light, and neg­a­tive and pos­i­tive space. May­nard finds the feath­ers at aviaries and zoos. “I want to cap­ture an essence of life and what bet­ter way than to be­gin with some­thing that al­ready holds some of the essence I am trying to cap­ture,” he said in a state­ment about the work. His solo ex­hi­bi­tion As­cen­sion is on view through July 22.
