More feather works by Kate MccGwire. London.
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?
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.
wow…simply stunning. it’s beautiful and kind of scary at the same time. great!!
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.
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
