Cataline Chervin ink drawingImages, Shadows

Description: Elements of Surrealism suffuse the art of contemporary Argentine artist Catalina Chervin. In this heavily worked drawing from her "Images" series, Chervin first applies a fixative to the paper, making it rougher and more adherent; she describes the process of drawing on it with a Derben pencil as a "battle with the paper"--a battle during which the materials themselves contribute to the composition of the image. View detail of this drawing. Bochum Museum director Sepp Hiekisch-Picard writes: "Man is also a chemical, mineral being--he is both becoming and dying at thesame 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).
