Serena Bocchino is an artist whose themes include the visual interpretations of American jazz . 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.”
~ Barry Schwabsky, New York Times
