McQueen uses willow branches, bark, burrs and other natural materials that he strings together to create stunning basket-like sculptures that “hover, often with great humor, in the gap between craft, sculpture and Conceptual Art.”  McQueen “weaves willow twigs into flat open work panels, that are tied together with wax string and built into sculptural constructions. Some works are cage-like while others resemble familiar objects — a book, a desk calendar, a painting.”

McQueen’s work can be seen in collections around the world, including the Renwick Gallery at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American Art, the Museum of Art + Design, the Racine Art Museum, The Cooper-Hewitt Museum, as well as the Kunstindustrimuseum in Norway among others.
