Genevieve Chua (born 1984, Singapore) is a painter 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.
Selected solo exhibitions include Vestigials and Halves (Seoul, 2017); Rehearsals for the Wilful (Manila, 2016); Moths (Hong Kong, 2015); Parabola (Singapore, 2014); Cicadas Cicadas (Los Angeles, 2014); Adinandra Belukar (Singapore Biennale 2011). She was conferred the Young Artist Award (2012) by the National Arts Council, Singapore.
The artist has also participated in shows such as Choruses (Hong Kong, 2017); BMW Young Asian Artist Series II (Singapore, 2011); Art Project Ideas at Hiroshima MOCA (Japan, 2011); Cross-scape at the Kumho Museum of Art (South Korea, Seoul, 2011); Shadow in the Dark (Hong Kong, 2011) and CUT 2009: Figure, New Photography from Southeast Asia (Kuala Lumpur; Singapore 2009).
Genevieve Chua is currently based in London and Singapore
