The Work of Kate McCgwire

Juxtapoz // Monday, December 02, 2013
'Kate MccGwire's practice probes the beauty inherent in duality, exploring the play of opposites - at an aesthetic, intellectual and visceral level - that characterises the way we conceive the world. She does this by appealing to our essential duality as human beings, to our senses and our reason, and by drawing on materials capable of embodying a dichotomous way of seeing, feeling and thinking. The finished work has a consistent 'otherness' to it that places it beyond our experience of the world, poised on a threshold between the parameters that define everyday reality.'

She enjoys working with unusual, older materials: “things that have a mind of their own.” Born in St. Louis, Missouri and now residing in Georgia, USA, Simmons is able to breathe new life in materials that have mostly been thrown away or donated at some point in the past. Thought and intention allow items that have passed their prime to live as art.
