Catalina Chervin painting Untitled Pastel

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. This painting is built-up then much of the paint scraped away; in portions, a filmy layer of rice paper has been applied to the surface. View image enlarged. View image overall. Some of Chervin's paintings relate thematically to her drawings. Others, such as this more abstract work, explore different territory evoking early 20th century abstraction.

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).
