Maria Chevska

Maria Chevska’s practice incorporates painting, sculpture and installation, and often engages specifically with the written word. Her works emerge through the interaction of idea, material, and process.

She has explored and expanded on the more traditional boundaries of ‘painting’; positioning paintings alongside made and found objects to create installations in which individual pieces interact.

Chevska has an important standing both as an artist and educator and has been a Professor of Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford since the 1990s. Chevska currently lives and works in London and has held, amongst others, solo exhibitions in San Francisco, Helsinki, Berlin, Paris and London.
