PAINTINGS

DRAWINGS

Bocchino is inspired by the energy and life in jazz music.Her paintings capture sounds and rhythms to marvelous and lively effect in her work, which she has described as “images of sound using paint.” Her tools are her enamels, paints, acrylics, brushes, pencils, and her fascination with the line. Her abstract paintings and drawings translate the compositional, spontaneous and rhythmic qualities of music into a two dimensional form.

Color theory also plays a prominent role in this exhibition. Bocchino explores the interplay between white and a spectrum of blues in the paintings on exhibit, creating different energies and emotional vibrations on each canvas. She explains that, to her, these blues represent “waves, nets, fountains, skies, and dreams.”
