3. Moth #9, #10, #11 (2015)
Genevieve Chua (b. 1984) is a visual artist who works primarily through abstraction. Chua employs a method of working that unfurls and reveals the painter’s process through diagram, palimpsest, syntax, and the glitch. While notions of nature and wilderness persist across several works, the form taken by her exhibitions – image, text or object – is disrupted through painting. Chua’s ‘Moths’ works are part of a larger Unnatural History Drawings series; employing an approach derived from the taxonomy of museum specimen classification systems, ‘Moths’ explores the evolution of moths alongside the evolution of flowers they pollinate.
