Kate Mccgwire Explores Deep Avian Colours


British artist Kate Mccgwire’s latest show Host at art gallery Pertwee Anderson & Gold showcases her recent work with bird feathers, focussing on those shed by magpies, crows and pigeons.

Intrinsically tactile, the pieces address our desire to reach out and touch their surface, combined with our reason and self-control.

Slick, the largest piece on show, spills out of a disused fireplace in pools of petrol blue and black – a macabre exploration of colour and found materials.
