British artist Kate MccGwire‘s recent pieces feature sculpted forms created from thousands of feathers, from a diverse range of birds. Her artist statement explains:

Intrinsic to her method is the collecting and sorting of materials from hundreds of different sources over a period of months, even years. In turn, pieces evolve intuitively as if out of the subconscious, the language evocative rather than purely illustrative.

Her works, Warp, Evacuate, Discharge, and her current exhibition piece Corvid which uses crows’ feathers, are writhing, instinctual forms both strange and beautiful. The different birds have varying cultural associations, which influence her choices.

Corvid features in the exhibition Bound at the All Visual Arts in London’s Kings Cross, which runs until April 30th.
