Kate MccGwire: Boundary Creatures

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Practising since the late 1990s, Kate MccGwire (b.1964) has become internationally recognised for her distinctive aesthetic formula, a convulsive sculptural mode of multiplicity and repetition as the basis for composition, texture, pattern and form. Her chief medium of feathers is underpinned by a reflexive nod to the flocking behaviour of her avian source material – namely twilight murmurations, that colossal flocking or directional swarming that tends to occur in certain bird species around dusk, as if choreographed.
