 About the Artist…

Serena Bocchino’s fine art education began in 1980 at Wroxton College in England and continued in St. Petersburg Russia. Formal studies at Fairleigh Dickinson University led to a M.A. degree from New York University.  One of the youngest artists ever to be awarded a residency at P.S.1 in Long Island City, NY, Ms. Bocchino became very active in the East Village movement in New York City during the 1980s. She is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies, including the Basil Alkazzi Award for the USA, a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, New Jersey State Council on the Arts awarded Ms. Bocchino in both Drawing and Painting. In addition to these awards, she was awarded a residency at the Center for Innovative Print and Paper at Rutgers University, and this past summer she had a residency at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper Wyoming. 

 

Robert Morgan the renowned art critic states in his essay from “The Romance Series” catalogue: 

“Bocchino has found a way through painting, to exist as an artist without imposing an agenda. Her work is focused on the essentials of her craft: the mark, the paint, the pulse, the stem the ovum, the radiant sense of blue, of pink, of whiteness. She pushes herself into the surface with ineluctable care and force, always willing to move out again to see what she has done. These painting shave a brilliant intimate side to them. They sparkle They gleam. They open doors to sunshine.”
