Out of the Darkness: Moths of Virginia, Paintings by Deborah Davis

Deborah Davis’ large-scale paintings of moths in our locality examine the mystery and beauty in detail of these fluttering, nocturnal creatures. Davis halts her agile subjects to create an intimate portrait, revealing a delicate complexity that is often overlooked by our swift interactions with the moth. Davis’ moths seem to pop off the canvas, embracing the geometry, color, and pattern in nature.

“Moths are the shamen of the night forest-invisible until we seek them. Throughout our human history moths have symbolized profound transformation with their own miraculous journey from pupa to adult.” — Deborah Davis
