Recently published Monograph:
Serena Bocchino The Artist
By Lisa A. Banner (Author), Jonathan Goodman (Author), Kathleen Goncharov (Introduction), Lily Zhang (Editor)
This comprehensive artist monograph begins with a biographical essay by art critic and writer Jonathan Goodman who tells the story of Bocchino’s childhood -growing up in an artist family and her participation in the East Village Art Movement of the 1980’s in New York City. Lisa A. Banner (art historian) continues to relate Bocchino’s work to a variety of art historical artists and art movements. Chinese Art Specialist, Lily Zhang (editor) contributes an essay of the art historical context of Bocchino’s work as it relates to the work of the Chinese Brush paintings. This book includes a foreword by Kathleen Goncharov, the Curator of the Boca Raton Art Museum and includes 140 full color plates.
…Bocchino’s paintings reveal a connection in the imaginative energy of the imagery, which salutes the adventurous spirit of American creativity. Bocchino’s recent works demonstrate an ongoing evolution that is exciting to witness. With nearly three decades of work already under her belt, she is proving why we shouldn’t take our eyes off her, her work has always more to discover.”– Jonathan Goodman, Art Writer/Critic taken from the book, Serena Bocchino The Artist
…Bocchino does not mumble nor spew the musical language folded into the artwork: she speaks it loudly and clearly.”– Kathryn Arnold, Art Critic, ArtVoices Magazine
