Combining the grace and exactness of geometry with gestural contours, Chevez’s imagery feels futuristic, yet ancient and tribal, not unlike the cultures she has experienced exploring places like Mexico, Australia, Jamaica, India, and Africa. Her materials also reflect her respect for history infused with modern meaning. Pages from old books, homemade paper and beeswax are things that bring a humble humanity to her otherworldly, asymmetrical abstractions, which are often composed using design software and then superimposing the etching process.
Looping, wanderlust lines become visual poetry of space in Chevez’s works, interrupting the graph of her shapes and forms, plotting the course of her psychological impressions and memories distilled from her world travels. The repeated, asymmetrical halves that occur in her imagery, with one side slightly different from the other yet always joining together in the center, hint at the shared moments of one being with another: a human transmission across a timeless plane, a constellation in an astral universe of thought.
