|Description: Contemporary Argentine artist Catalina Chervin's primary work is making minutely detailed drawings and etchings. As a counterpoint to these meticulous artworks, Chervin makes somewhat looser paintings using oilstick, and various other materials, on paper. Some of her paintings relate thematically to her drawings--others do not. This work, very evocative of the internal body and influenced by elements of Surrealism, is typical of this artist's drawings of the late 1990's. View entire artwork.|
In 2005, Chervin received the Premio Trabucco, a prestigious Argentine prize, for her career achievement in drawing. 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).
