Most recently he has created a series of sculptures involving both life-size shopping carts and miniature ones. In these sculptures McVeigh explores consumerism and its resulting social issues by referencing the instability of our culture and the endless pursuit of more.

Last month in Cottesloe’s 8th annual Sculpture by the Sea, McVeigh had both an outdoor (top photo is The New Covenant) and indoor (bottom photo: Covenant Under Question?) sculpture exhibited.
