Artist Kate MccGuire creates surreal sculptures that eerily appear to have a life of their own.

Each piece is composed of carefully aligned feathers collected by the artist. The materials are arranged into sculptural shapes that are intricate with their serpentine qualities. The braids and sensual shapes provide viewers with an eerie sight that challenges perceptions of form, nature and art.

The delicate pieces by MccGuire boast an eclectic palette made up hue combinations that come from the feathers. Sculptures acquire a sleek sheen as a result of the natural avian—material composition. With its contortion of shapes and feathers, the installations seem create a new standard of surreal taxidermy. Kate MccGuire’s work does not hold back in its beautiful aesthetic that shocks with the sense of a form that was once alive.
