Working With Feathers: The Art of Kate MccGwire

Juxtapoz // Sunday, September 09, 2012
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.

Shoey Nam: Loved and Labored

Juxtapoz // Sunday, August 05, 2012
"‘Loved and Labored’ is an open project that required one to extensively explore personal interest. I decided to produce series of portraiture pieces to scrutinize my curiosity of people’s faces as I think each tell a story of their own. I chose to illustrate a set of literature figures, as writers have the tendency to carry a certain haggardness and cynicism of the world on their faces, which are often reflected in their words..."
