Catalina Chervin painting Untitled Hilos

Description:   Contemporary Argentine artist Catalina Chervin's primary work is making minutely detailed large-scale drawings. As a counterpoint to these meticulous artworks, Chervin makes relatively looser paintings using oilstick, and various other materials, on paper. In this painting, the term "hilos" refers to the threads imbedded then withdrawn from the built up oilstick; they give the drawing its crisp elements. See painting linear details. Some of Chervin's paintings relate thematically to her drawings--others do not. This work is more abstract than Chervin's drawing and is rather reminiscent of an early 20th century painter such as Klee. View image overall.

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).
