Murray Bridge Regional Gallery presents work by Sam Mulcahy.
“Amidst the ruins of a once thriving civilisation, the opportunistic genus tetnesteii slowly reclaims the decimated landscape, utilising the waste of a long gone destructive species. With soils teeming with pollution from this brief yet devastating period, the tetnesteiis have opted for a more toxic diet than their plant-based ancestors. They care not for the numerous mistakes of that species’ past, they simply want to just get on with it.” – Artist’s exhibition statement, 2023.
Mulcahy is based in Clayton Bay and was mentored by the celebrated Annabelle Collett. His practice has included mural painting, mosaic and sculpture and ephemeral installations, as well as constructing of painting machines and performing live with them. With the determination to only use recycled materials he is drawn to nature and its geometry.
Opening Event: Sunday 10 December, 2 – 4pm.
