Kate MccGwire

 

Found this really inspiring artist tonight who combines my love of taxidermy and sculptural forms with antiquities! 🙂

 

I gather, collate, re-use, layer, peel, burn, reveal, locate,
question, duplicate, play and photograph

Kate MccGwire’s practice probes the beauty inherent in duality, exploring the play of opposites – at an aesthetic, intellectual and visceral level – that characterises the way we conceive the world. She does this by appealing to our essential duality as human beings, to our senses and our reason, and by drawing on materials capable of embodying a dichotomous way of seeing, feeling and thinking. The finished work has a consistent ‘otherness’ to it that places it beyond our experience of the world, poised on a threshold between the parameters that define everyday reality.
