Foremost a painter, Maria Chevska often exhibits her sculpture and installations alongside her paintings. Her works have specifically engaged with poetry, language, and selected writers, that connect to, and exist in dialogue with: philosophy, memory, history, and current events. The works emerge through the intersection of idea, material, gesture, and process - a fluid and provisional relationship between the paintings and objects is sustained that will find a completion through the role of a viewer’s participation and reception of the works.

Significant projects since the early ‘90s include collaborations with artists, and writers leading to numerous publications; a monograph ‘Vera’s Room, the Art of Maria Chevska’ was published by Black Dog in 2005. Solo exhibitions have taken place in the UK, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, France, Italy, Poland, and USA.

Maria Chevska lives and works in London. From 1990 until 2016, she was a Professor of fine art at the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford.
