Kate MccGwire's fearsome feathers at the RWA

'SMOTHER'
MY EXCITED ART HANDS GETTING ALL ENTHUSIASTIC OVER SCULPTURE, THIS ONE IS ''GYRE'
'SKIRMISH'
I've been a fan of Kate MccGwire since I was doing my art foundation. I stumbled across her work whilst researching for a bird themed projected and was immediately smitten... you could say that she spawned my fascination with feathers ever since! 

Back in September I got my first chance to see her work in the flesh at the RWA where she was doing a join exhibition with Peter Randall-Page. Her uncanny sculptures (look closely, they're all made from feathers!) were just as I'd imagined they'd be in real life and certainly didn't disappoint, the large and bright space in the RWA was perfect for them. I particularly enjoyed some of the framed pieces which were something I hadn't seen as much of before - could be a really interesting thing to try and recreate myself.
