Previously collaborating together on the experimental installation and performance art exhibition DIG, the three-dimensionally inclined artists partner again here on Cast Light, a series of “lights” consisting of a single long-life LED bulb cast within a solid cubic volume of white gypsum cement […]

Update: Kate Mccgwire

It appears that the London-based Kate MccGwire has created some new work since her showing at All Visual Arts last April. For this series, the sculptor who utilizes feathers has enclosed her beautiful free-flowing forms in what look to be vintage cabinets. The pieces entitled Guile, Lure, Quell, Seer and Yearn feature carefully placed plumage from both MccGwire’s light and dark winged friends, transformed into emotion-evoking abstractions with her gifted hands. Take a look at more photos after the jump, but you can also currently see her […]
