Serena Maisto (1982 – )
Serena Maisto’s artistic career begins with her confrontation to the myth of Abstract Expressionism, Jackson Pollock: according to his technique, her works are characterized by flows of colors that almost inundate the canvas, showing her emotions and sensations. Over time she developed other techniques by using innovative materials such as Plexiglas, which permits the creation of site specific artworks to be seen through its transparency. Starting in 2017, she became interested in photography and its possible re-interpretations. That same year she launched the project entitled “Time Line: my walk with Basquiat”: in which the artist, struck by the shots of Swiss photographer Edo Bertoglio, decided to intervene pictorially, in response to the urgent need to get as close as possible to the American artist. The project launched a new phase of her artistic career, based on the reflection of disintegration of the image.
