Serena Bocchino is an artist whose themes include the visual interpretations of American jazz and the energies of the urban landscape. She is inspired by jazz and the spiritual aspects of music. Barry Schwabsky of the New York Times, in a full-page review of her work, stated:

Part of the pungency of her paintings is the way they insinuate half-forgotten sights and sounds into a vividly immediate contest… The feeling that within these paintings everything is in transition, that none of their elements have become too strictly defined, may be exactly what keeps them fresh.”
