Description: Elements of Surrealism suffuse the art of contemporary Argentine artist Catalina Chervin.In this work from her "Images" series, Argentine artist Catalina Chervin uses a wash for the slightest hint of color then builds her drawing upon it. Assiduous in her selection of quality materials, Chervin chooses a specific type of paper for each work; the paper here is Waterford with a soft, articulated edge. View detail of this drawing. Bochum Museum director Sepp Hiekisch-Picard writes: "Visible reality, to be measured with the eyes, is but a minimal part of the reality of the universe and human existence. Man is also a chemical, mineral being--he is both becoming and dying at the same time... Catalina Chervin creates models of contemplation for an authentic and fundamental vision of man's being." |
Catalina Chervin is represented in museum collections in the USA, South America, and Europe including: Brooklyn Museum (New York), Princeton University Museum (New Jersey), British Museum (London) Albertina (Vienna), Museo de Arte Contemporaneo (Buenos Aires) and Bochum Museum (Germany).
