Catalina Chervin, Atmospheres and Entropy: Works on paper 2016-2017 Fall-Winter



Cecilia de Torres, Ltd. is pleased to announce Catalina Chervin's first solo traveling exhibition Atmospheres and Entropy: Works on paper on view November 17th, 2016 through February 4th, 2017.

Curated by Susanna V. Temkin, PhD., and recently on view at the F Street Gallery, OAS, Art Museum of the Americas in Washington D.C., Atmospheres and Entropy presents a selection of works on paper by Catalina Chervin.  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 conjures forth landscapes, emotional states, or haunting presences.
