Description: Elements of Surrealism and its psychological portraiture suffuse the art of contemporary Argentine artist Catalina Chervin. Simultaneously taut and gentle, this drawing speaks of sacrifice. As always, Chervin selects the materials for each drawing with great care; this ink and charcoal work is on Waterford paper with its softly articulated edge. View entire drawing. Bochum Museum director Sepp Hiekisch-Picard writes: "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." |
