Genevieve is committed to the exploration of design, photography, collage and illustration to discover new methods of rendering gateways that lead to a place where memories are either revived, recreated, exaggerated or forgotten. Influenced by her adoption and Mother's death, she is interested in dissecting and comprehending the various ways in which an individual confronts and survives traumatic experiences. In depicting a romanticized world, Genevieve aims to create both digital and physical environments that expose and remove the ugliness that lurks in the shadows of our world; a place where troubled souls can heal and where she can heal herself. These small worlds are fictitious and deceptive yet genuine since they derive from real experiences and emotions: the disappointments, identity issues, the grieving process and the challenges she has had to overcome in order to grow and become the person that she is today.

When Genevieve lost her Mother in 2011, she had an epiphany... We only see what we enable ourselves to see. Our dissatisfaction either within ourselves or with the world in which we exist in only distract and often even blind us from what we truly need to see. We have a tendency to overlook the things that truly matter. In most cases, we already have what we could possibly ever need, but our discontentment not only affects our perception and our relationships, but it also causes us to lose sight of the important things that are usually right in front of us.

Genevieve is influenced by: Kurt Schwitters, the Dadaists, the Romantics, Expressionist artists, the Surrealists, Ray Caesar, Jean-Paul Sartre, Friedrich Nietzsche, Hans Bellmer, Victorian era and Steampunk. Read Less
