This sculpture melds wonder at nature’s creativity, with a fascination for Cartesian geometry and grids. Initial curiosity while looking at the peculiar formations of banksia nuts became a personal challenge to solve a complex construction puzzle. On a conceptual level, a seedpod is an embodiment of hope, symbolising the potential for growth. Hope rises… Vermey typically makes large scale public artworks for integration within the fabric of buildings. Liv Apartments on Queen Victoria Street, near the Fremantle Leisure Centre, is home to one of his local public artworks.
