Maria Chevska (b. England) lives and works in London. Her practice incorporates painting, sculpture, and installation, and she often works in dialogue with literature, and writers. Foremost a painter whose works emerge through the interaction of idea, material, and process, she values the ability to embody the unseen unique to this medium yet often expanding it’s boundaries through a contextual practice. Significant projects since the early ‘90s include solo exhibitions of paintings, and installations that have taken place in Finland, Germany, France, Italy, Poland, England, and America. A monograph (Vera’s Room, The Art of Maria Chevska) was published by Black Dog in 2005. Recent solo exhibitions: Dubious to Reason, Vane Newcastle (2014); From the Diary of a Fly, Mummery&Schnelle, London (2013); Guest from the Future, Galerie8 London (2011); And Modernism, San Francisco (2010); Yet, Helsinli Contemporary, Finland (2008); For it Seems, Hoffman Collection Berlin (2007); and Weis, Rohkunstbau Berlin (2007).
