We are pleased to announce a traveling solo exhibition featuring works on paper by Argentine artist Catalina Chervin. Focusing on the otherworldly effects achieved through an intense and dedicated artistic process, Atmospheres and Entropy presents a selection of works on paper by the artist. A master draftswoman, Chervin’s unique practice is characterized by agonizingly 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.

Atmospheres and Entropy is curated by Susanna V. Temkin, PhD.

This exhibition is made possible through the support of the Permanent Mission of Argentina to the OAS
