    This is quite impressive – as feathers often are. Does Kate MccGwire make feather sculptures that she later photographs or does she create all of this digitally?

    Hi Davidkus
    Yes they are site-specific sculptures made from feathers that I then photograph. ( not digital)

    I’ve been a fan of her and seeing her new works, gives me the same feeling when I discovered her works for the first time. Stunning.

    How to you go about collecting such large quantities of feathers?

    • http://www.katemccgwire.com Kate MccGwire

      I collect the feathers in many different ways – you may want to check out a short film about my work which explains some of the processes. Kate

Artist Spotlight: Cleon Peterson


The violent, mesmerizing, and brutally honest work of artist Cleon Peterson. In some paintings demon-like characters are attacking people, in other paintings similar actions are being carried out by uniformed figures. What is perhaps most disturbing is the realisation that we are drawn to such darkness; titillating news headlines, and bloody movies. The violence is inside of us all. More images below.
