I am interested in making connections with people who feel that art is the most interesting subject there is, that making things by hand must endure, and that cherishing nature can help to preserve it.
I love working with individual and corporate clients to create site specific art. I enjoy exhibiting, making new works, photographing nature and writing about art, art making and artists.
Art may be purchased directly from me at my studios in Easton, Maryland and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I welcome visitors. Please contact me to arrange a visit. Or, you may contact my gallery in Scottsdale, Arizona, www.cervinihaas.com.
Artist's Statement: My art is a meditation on Nature. From garden, wetlands and woods I gather the raw materials I use in creating my "soft paintings". These imaginary botanicals and abstracted landscapes are begun by painting and printing in multiple layers on un-stretched silk or cotton canvas. With machine and hand stitching I work into and through the painted surface. Marks made by hand, brush and stitch interweave with natural forms from the earth to communicate memory, emotion and my philosophy of co existence in harmony with nature. My goal is to create an evocative artwork that nourishes mind, eye and spirit in equal measure.
