Catalina Chervin



b. 1953, Corrientes, Argentina – lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Born in Corrientes, Argentina, Catalina Chervin graduated from the National School of Fine Arts Ernesto de la Cárcova.  Based in Buenos Aires, she has also worked with various print workshops in New York City.

A master draftswoman, Chervin’s unique practice is characterized by precise mark-making that the artist works and reworks for what often stretches into multiple years.  Over time, these carefully rendered graphic traces build into dense layers that seem to hover on the edge of entropy, yet remain balanced by Chervin’s controlled restraint.  Drawing viewers into their psychologically-fraught atmospheres, the resulting artworks create a sensation of deep perspectival space that at times conjure forth landscapes, emotional states, or haunting presences. 

Chervin has received numerous awards and fellowships, including the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship (2004 and 2015) and the Fondo Nacional de las Artes Fellowship in Buenos Aires (2001).  Artworks by Chervin are in prestigious public and private collections internationally, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York; the New York Public Library; the Art Museum of the Americas, Washington, D.C.; the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, California; the Blanton Museum of Art, the University of Texas, Austin; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; and the Albertina Museum, Vienna, among others.
