Kate MccGwire’s overwhelming feather sculptures are urging the viewer to alter their perception and preconceptions about beauty.

Using uncommon materials, the artist creates dynamic forms that intrigue one’s imagination!

I read in the artist’s statement: “Intrinsic to her method is the collecting and sorting of materials from hundreds of different sources over a period of months, even years. In turn, pieces evolve intuitively as if out of the subconscious, the language evocative rather than purely illustrative. As the work takes shape, a new, playful reality emerges, so that the object itself becomes a sort of prism, refracting the layers of meaning and cultural associations buried within, the quantity of materials used sometimes deliberately overwhelming, as if charged with a power and ambition beyond the reach they possess when seen in isolation”.
