On November 18 at Cape Schanck Resort Vera Möller spoke at a long lunch event hosted by RACV and Front Beach Back Beach. along with two other artists. Guests enjoyed a locally inspired long lunch from award-winning executive chefs whilst each of the artists as they delved into their practice and the background behind their projects.⁠

Vera Möller is interested in the boundaries between the real and the imagined. Möller creates paintings and sculptures by placing fictional hybrid plants in existing terrains. Bright colours and patterns, coral-like and succulent-plant forms and toadstool shapes describe her depictions of dreamt-up specimens that evoke the natural world. Möller’s ‘fantasy specimens’ demonstrate the way in which her science background and art practice have steadily converged. After training as a biologist in Germany, Möller migrated to Australia in 1986. She later completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the Victorian College of the Arts and a PhD at Monash University. Her work has been exhibited in the USA, Japan, Finland, France, Germany and the UK, as well as throughout Australia.⁠
