Marie De Rocca Serra


Marie De Rocca Serra lives in Paris and works in Ivry-sur-Seine. She studied at the University of Paris VIII (plastic arts section) and benefited from the teaching of Michèle Casanova, plastic artist within her workshop "acte plastique". She also worked on sculpture in the studio of Joe Neil, sculptor, teacher at the American School of Fine Arts in Paris (Parson's school). The work of Marie De Rocca Serra, an abstract expressionist, is part of the lyrical abstraction movement. The color black and its infinite variations represent an essential element of her painting. My research aims to treat black in matter, gesture, density, and its staging in a space subjected to a slight twist. Exclusively monochrome, this space is defined, circled, put under tension by the intrusion of the edges in the composition.
