Cicadas #4, Castanets

Born in 1984, Genevieve graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts (Painting) from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in 2004. Genevieve works on an unfurling narrative in which the wilderness takes the form of a nebulous feminine creature that repossesses the city by flooding. Informed by Southeast Asian superstition and horror, the works are contingent realities presented as installations, images and objects.

In Singapore, selected solo exhibitions include at the Singapore Biennale 2011, Objectifs, M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2009, and National Museum of Singapore 2009. She was a recipient of the NAC Georgette Chen Scholarship 2003/4 and the Young Artist Award in 2012 conferred by the National Arts Council Singapore.

The artist is represented by STPI (Singapore), Gallery EXIT (Hong Kong) and Gusford Gallery (Los Angeles).  www.genchua.com
