Serena Perrone is best known for her print work, which often combines hand-drawn imagery and painting with layered printmaking techniques. It presents fictions grounded in realities of experience and consequently blurs the line between fact and fiction, past and present. Scenery becomes a theatrical space, strongly relaying emotions tied to time and space. Perrone's work is included in the permanent collections of the Yale University Art Gallery, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Library of Congress, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among other public and corporate collections.
A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with a Master's Degree in Printmaking, Perrone's print work has been exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions including the List Gallery of Swarthmore College; the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Cade Tompkins Projects, Providence; Ningyo Editions, Boston; RISD's Sol Koffler Gallery; the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, Philadelphia; and the University of Wyoming Art Museum, in Laramie. Recent two-person and group exhibitions include: the Philadelphia Museum of Art; the International Print Center New York; The Print Center, Philadelphia; David Krut Projects New York; Vox Populi Gallery, Philadelphia; the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Smith College Museum of Art; SUNY Purchase; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts; the Art League, Houston; the University of Texas at Austin; the Creative Alliance at the Patterson, Baltimore; Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Philadelphia; the Arlington Arts Center, Virginia; Woman Made Gallery, Chicago; the Walton Arts Center, Fayetteville, Arkansas; and the Delaware Center For Contemporary Arts, in Wilmington. She has received grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Santo Foundation, the William J. Cooper Foundation, and the Vermont Studio Center.
In 2013 Serena visited Iceland and was featured in the 2014 Due North exhibit at the Icebox Project Space in Philadelphia. More information about Serena can be found here.
