The Sculpture of Kate MccGuire


Sluice - Pigeon feathers, felt, glue and polystyrene - 4.5 x 2.5 x .5 m

Kate MccGuire is creating stunning sculptures and installations using Pigeon feathers.  The many layers of intricately placed feathers bring her sculptures to life.

Kate MccGwire’s work asks questions about the very nature of beauty. She’s intrigued by the possibility of envisaging beauty as something more complex than merely what delights the senses: beauty can be about a problem; it can be something that repels you or makes you question the status quo. The idea that it is a cultural phenomenon, susceptible to argument through the creative process, fascinates her.
