Nature and natural history are the recurring subjects in Geraldine Javier’s multi-media paintings and installations. During a 2011 exhibition “Museum of Many Things,” Javier explained that her works are “about display, about filling the space with dead specimens and dressing them up to make them seem alive, but it is also a personal process, simultaneously emptying out and remembering.” Her works are often constructed in layers and make use of dioramic vitrines in addition to painting. In 2010, she produced a multi-part work of fantastic proportion dedicated to Frida Kahlo, titled Ella Amo’Apasionadamente Y Fue Correspondida ( “For she loved fiercely, and she is well-loved”), comprised of a large canvas painting overhung with framed mounted butterflies.
