Holly O’Meehan

Holly O’Meehan is an emerging artist based in Australia. Her process-driven practice combines numerous ancient craft techniques in an effort to “hero the handmade”. Reflecting the maker’s hands in materials, she explores the current critique of such crafts within the contemporary art scene.

With particular focus on combining crochet with clay and ceramics, O’Meehan emphasises the highly laborious and time-consuming nature of such projects, whilst referencing organic elements from immediate surroundings. The work acknowledges the conscious repetitiveness involved in mark-making.
