All This Has Happened Before conveys a powerful sense of movement like sunlight bursting through heavy cloud after a storm. For Genevieve Leavold the work is about the ability to find light in the darkest moments.

Genevieve, a British abstract painter based in Belgrade, works to create freeform, organic paintings and drawings. Central to her work are questions about our increasing separation from nature and the impact this has on our humanity.

Growing up in Somerset, Genevieve explains that as a child she spent hours amongst nature observing it closely. She is now particularly drawn to organic forms like lichen, mosses and Fungi, marine plant and microbiological and mycological shapes and colours.
