kate mccgwire


I am most drawn to the work of Kate MccGwire that uses feathers as its medium. Feathers are a familiar object that she redefines into a materials that powerfully surges. Shown above: Deave, Sluice, and Retch.

From her website:
"Much of Kate's work references Freud's 'Unheimliche' (the uncanny, or, literally, the 'unhomely'); the idea, to quote Freud, of 'a place where the familiar can somehow excite fear'. It also embraces artistic notions of the Abject."
