Christopher Marley’s art expresses his passionate engagement with the beautiful forms of nature.
In Biophilia (literally “love of life”) he begins with insects and moves on to aquatic life, reptiles, birds, plants, and minerals, using his skills as a designer and naturalist to create three-dimensional artwork that produces strong, positive emotional responses.
Marley is unusual among artists for using the natural specimens he preserves as his design medium. He collects or reclaims his subjects in an environmentally responsible manner using a worldwide network of people and institutions that share his passion for nature. Marley possesses a brilliant eye for color, pattern, and texture. In a dazzling section called “Unity” that concludes this book, lie reveals deep relationships between vastly different natural objects, from feathers to orchids to rubies.
Biophilia is Marley’s tribute to living things and the joy that they bring, in the form of exquisite works of art.
