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.
