Details

Alluring, uncanny and sensual coiled forms of shimmering plumage characterise the work of Kate MccGwire.

‘Lure’ is a dual reference to the ring of feathers used by falconers to call and command their birds, and to the siren-like call of MccGwire’s art. It evokes the combination of our fascination for the iridescent, exotic specimens on display and the desire to look closer in spite of the disquieting atmosphere they create.

MccGwire’s works have a brooding predatory physicality that at once attracts and repels the viewer. She uses the language of nature’s forms to construct impossible creatures that challenge our perceptions of the authentic and the imaginary.
