Visceral Beauty

Visceral Beauty

‘Visceral Beauty’ is an immersive installation inviting the viewer to follow their
dark curiosity into the morbid and gory details of death and decay. Our
inquisitive side that secretly needs to get up close and personal with the
visceral and sticky organic details we know is the natural process of being
alive but are reluctant to engage with. This installation is about observing the
beauty and joy of life and death in all its colourful details. Paynter-O’Meehan
submerses crochet and skeletal structures in latex and resin, drilling holes in
bones, crocheted body parts with organic growths, subverts the rearrangements of these pieces into dark and unrecognisable forms. Do you
want to secretly examine more closely or quickly avert your eyes?
