McClure has a strong background in metalsmithing and design. She also produces videos and sculptures in which she cuts and destroys discarded battery operated stuffed animals with scissors, and reinvents them - a violent and deeply metaphorical act relating to lost youth and consumerism.
"This is this woman, this is Cathy McClure and she walks in and, who is she, what is she doing, what is she making, what do you call this stuff, what category, what, what....what is it? And so we wound up representing her and became more importantly very close friends with her. But this is what I wrote:
