The public is invited to the opening reception of "Serena Bocchino: Paintings from the iPOP series" on Sunday, April 10th. The artist will be signing copies of her children's books.
iPOP is the term used by Bocchino to describe her recent body of mixed media work which includes paintings, “photo-paintings,” painted figures and drawings. Using bright enamel and her unique “pouring technique,” Bocchino creates a true wonderland in this installation. Surrounding her vivid and lyrical paintings is a garden with ordinary lawn ornaments such as bunnies, squirrels and flamingos which she transforms into iconographic pop elements. The result is vital and dynamic; a colorful and surprising environment which combines high art with popular culture.
Bocchino is also a children’s book author and illustrator. Who Am I? The Story of the Artist, is her most recent book and will be on display and for sale for the duration of the exhibition. At the opening reception Bocchino will be available to sign copies of her book and limited edition giclee prints of the illustrations that combine watercolor illustration with her abstract paintings will also be on display.
