Feathers

One of the greatest joys of being a member of the Perrier Jouet Arts Salon is getting to know the other members, they’re all very distinguished people and also a lot of fun.

So I’m starting a series over the next few months introducing the other artist members to you.

First up is Kate MccGwire.

She probably doesn’t need much introduction, her work is pretty well known.  I was lucky enough to see her solo show at All Visual Arts in London in January, it was the first time I’d seen her work in the flesh so it great to see so much of it in one place.

Her work is very visceral and has so much energy to it.  The feathers she uses are all sourced ethically and create an amazing muted palate.  They’re so textured and have such energy and life in them.

Anyway rather than me wittering on about them here are some images for you to enjoy.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on Kate’s work, leave a comment below and hope you love it as much as I do and urge you if you get the chance to see it in person to do so.
If you want to find out more about Kate you can see her website here.

And do share this with anyone who you think might enjoy Kate’s work.

Thanks for reading.

Claire
