Paolo Cervi Kervischer was born in Trieste in 1951, where he lives and works. He studied with Nino Perizi at the Scuola Libera di Figura at the Civico Museo Revoltella. He graduated in painting with Emilio Vedova at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice in 1981. Paolo Cervi Kervischer confronts us with a dimension of change that is out of scale, unmanageable and incompatible with our dream of dominating change. In his works he recounts this leap, combining poetic fragments with portraits of intimacy. He seems to want to reveal the aspects that remain hidden beneath the surface, investigating under the skin of the painting. His work is always the beginning of a story that takes him to the threshold of an unknown and fantastic world from which he brings back an unknown part. Composed materials through shapes, evocations, sensations and poetry, with which he plays and which penetrates to tell about the micro-stories hidden in the places of a visual narrative made of unease and beauty, evolution and analysis, in the ability to activate that symbolic tension capable of not dispersing emotion. The search for the identification of the human in another being is the consequence of the destruction of the stereotypes of perfection that were already destabilized: anguish, fear, beauty, poetry, are for Paolo Cervi Kervischer an attempt to deconstruct perfection of the images that the mass society reproduces. From the symbolic expressionism the tendency to build fluid and decadent atmospheres remains evident, to investigate the boundaries between the outside and the inside of a body, the passage to the most violated intimacy. He made the Toon Gee cup (1992) and the special series of cups Basket Playground (1996) for the Illy Collection. The first volume of the artist’s catalogue raisonné is currently being published: “Paolo Cervi Kervischer – 1978/2002 Catalogue Raisonné“.
His works are present in private and public collections, including Illy Collection, Generali Bank, Archivio Museo Correr and José Pinto Masal Collection.
