If only evolution could catch up with our destruction.

A series of hand built porcelain sculptures inspired by the 73% endemic species out of the 681 Proteaceaes found in the South West region of WA. The work further explores the themes and issues raised during O’Meehan’s recent solo exhibition, DefenceDefiance at Goolugatup Heathcote. A speculative interpretation of the inevitable evolution of the landscape and vegetation, forced into action by harsh human interference. Although a dark and morbid reality, O’Meehan suggests the aggressive reaction is more a hopeful form of self-defence by the 'slow movers' of our natural environment.

This artwork was specifically developed for the Sculpture @ Bathers 2022 exhibition.
