Mylène Gervais

Posted by – August 18, 2008

“Mylène Gervais, an accomplished print maker, examines the subject of child abuse. The fourteen, large format, and all untitled serigraphs and wood block prints, are displayed unframed and otherwise unadorned along the walls almost as children’s drawings are displayed along a classroom wall. But that is where the comparison ends, for there are no smiley faced families under sunny skies in these pictures. Gervais, in conjunction with a psychologist who treats victims of child abuse, has deeply researched the phenomenon — the experience of which has profoundly informed her art.”
