James Bacchi Contemporary Presents: JAZZED: Inspired works by SERENA BOCCHINO March 18th-April 10

OPENING RECEPTION Saturday, March 18, 2023, 1-4pm at the Shops at 1345

JAZZED: Inspired Work by Serena Bocchino marks the artist’s first exhibition in Palm Springs. This show brings together an eclectic variety of media: From enamel paint, mirrors, porcelain pieces, and works on paper, to paintings on canvas as well as suspended sculpture. Describing her work, Bocchino states…“The abstract nature of music as it relates to visual art has always fascinated me; specifically, the idea that the sounds of music prompt distinctive visual imagery. As a visual artist, I always see music; I imagine it in space and in terms of colors for certain notes, as well as clouds of sounds, lines of tempos and in a variety of marks ultimately becoming beats. “ Bocchino’s studio practice is driven by the idea of transforming sound ‘that fills a room’ and that ‘emotionally moves us to a higher level of thought. Many of the works in this exhibition are “moments in time” which Bocchino sees musically translated into paintings and works on paper. The swirls and lines and marks are actually how she sees the combined musical rhythms and compositions in her mind’s eye. The smaller works on paper are intimate isolated parts of a musical composition or actual parts of a musical score that interest her. Bocchino has exhibited worldwide with recent museum exhibitions at the National Museum of Gdansk, Poland, The Museo Italo Americano in San Francisco CA, The Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper Wyoming and the Taoxichuang Art Museum of China Central Academy of Fine Art, China. The Artist’s works are featured in major Museum and Corporate Collections including the Springfield Museum of Art, Ohio, St. Louis Art Museum, St. Louis, The Zimmerli Art Museum as well as the Langone Medical Center in NY, McKinsey & Co. Incorporated, NY and DeLoitte Headquarters, NY. A Solo Exhibition is upcoming at the Ivy Brown Gallery, NY in November of this year. Jazzed: Inspirational Works by Serena Bocchino continues at the James Bacchi Contemporary, at the Shops at 1345 N. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs through April 10, 2023.
