Kate MccGwire: Feathers, Hair and Insects

Juxtapoz // Monday, November 03, 2014
We're always excited to see new work from sculptor Kate MccGwire, who is known for her incredible pieces made of feathers collected from pigeons around her studio, and we were intrigued to learn that she is experimenting with other natural materials in her newest work, including hair and bugs.

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.'

Kate Mccgwire "Lure" @ All Visual Arts Gallery, London

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 02, 2012
All Visual Arts are proud to present a major solo exhibition from sculptor Kate MccGwire. The title Lure is a dual reference to the ring of feathers used by a falconer to call and command their birds, and to the siren-like call of the work itself. It evokes the combination of our fascination with the iridescent, exotic specimens on display and the desire to look closer in spite of the disquieting atmosphere they create. The exhibition opens November 23, 2012 in London.
