Esther Woerdehoff has decided to launch her personal newsletter. Here is the first one which is devoted to Chervine‘s work.
It was a frozen night in February 2018 when I met Chervine, during his exhibition at the Nuit de la Photo in La Chaux de Fonds, and I was immediately seduced by the theatrical scenes in this very special play of light. The series is titled “Solitude.” The people in Chervine’s photos remain lost in the environment as are Edward Hopper’s characters in his paintings.
Discovering an artist who is not yet known in the art world is a real pleasure. But bringing him into your gallery is a risk. What if I’was just the victim of a spontaneous seduction?
To my delight, Chervine’s work was an immediate success among my collectors. His beautiful prints on baryte paper have found their place in the drawers of the gallery where young clients ask for them.
I let you discover his unpublished photos of Lock-down New York from his Instagram « fairvanity » account and on https://ewgalerie.com/artistes/chervine/.
Chervine was born in 1972 in Iran, grew up in Paris and now lives in New Work. He started to photograph as a self-taught artist during his travels around the world. In 2015, he began the personal series of scenes of his city.
