EXPLORING MOTH SPECIES OF THE GREAT SOUTHERN REGION
A debut solo exhibition by young Great Southern artist Chelsea Hopkins-Allen.
Chelsea has been developing artwork during the past 12 months for her first solo exhibition at the Vancouver Arts Centre, Albany, Western Australia. She was offered the exhibition as part of the City of Albany Acquisitive Prize, as winner of the Great Southern Art Award 2017. Her work has developed through a range of representations of the MOTH, these elusive and little understood insect creatures, known in the scientific world as belonging to the order Lepidoptera.
In this exhibition, Chelsea leads us through a range of her personal experiences of the MOTH - some appear to be a nod to the ubiquitous collections we may find in the museum, some may be winged monsters, and others are developments of nonfigurative, formal interpretations of the patterns found on the wings of these creatures
