  • 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’m such a huge fan of Kate’s work… it really blows me away.

  • These are really fantastic. I thought they were snake scales at first.

  • Hanna

    wow…simply stunning. it’s beautiful and kind of scary at the same time. great!!

  • lapetitefaon

    gorgeous!

  • NAMBO

    For some reason I get the slightest feeling as if it’s part of some kind of scary movie! haha

  • Congrats! but i also like the stigma series: sophisticated in color and composition.

  • Feather boa, plume (plumage) of smoke… nice.

  • Rain

    Definitely have a nightmarish aura to them, but very cool.

  • 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?

    • 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

London-based artist Jonty Hurwitz transforms warped digital renderings into incredible anamorphic sculptures made out of bronze, copper, plaster and paint. “Anamorphosis” relates to purposeful distortions that depend on an additional device or precise vantage point to reconstruct the image.
