The Work: Margaret Meehan, Mercy Mercy Me (For Greta), 2020
Location: Conduit Gallery, Dallas — Meehan’s solo exhibition After Laughter, through April 3.

To be human is to be flawed. Yet in our supposed imperfections we are complete beings, faultlessly diverse in our genetics and personal histories. Recognizing our shared humanity, despite or because of our differences, should not be dismissed as new-age blather; it is more than a facile self-help tenet to acknowledge and value our idiosyncrasies of shape and character. Margaret Meehan’s Mercy Mercy Me (For Greta) is a wonderfully effective sculpture that embodies this wisdom. It stands as a totem honoring our quirks of being while accepting the paradoxical similarity and discrepancies of our lives.
