Serse’s work, created through a complex use of graphite in a play of light and shadow, creates an abstract landscape of meticulous photographic descriptiveness, which leads to other dimensions.


Born in San Paolo del Piave in 1952, Serse lives and works in Trieste. The works of Serse, realized through a complex use of graphite in a play of light and shadow, create an abstract landscape of a meticulous photographic descriptivism, which in a sort of temporal suspension lead into other dimensions. The contemporaneity in his practice stands precisely in that he rejects the specificity of the drawing, that is, the illusion of the three dimensions, and its mimetic potential. “I live the paradox: I draw an extremely detailed landscape, spread the limits of its descriptiveness and simultaneously confirm the impossibility of its representation, its incoherent denial”. In fact, Serse’s landscapes do not reference the outside world. Rather, they mention the inner immensity so dear to the romantic poets. Ideally, they are landscapes of the soul, drawn with the eyes closed. Serse has produced over the years extraordinary series of images that have been included in the book “Drawing”, edited by Phaidon Press. These also owed him the participation to significant national and international exhibitions such as: Centre Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris, France (2013); Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rimini, Italy (2012); Musée des Beaux-Arts et d’archéologie de Besançon, France (2010); Palazzo Reale, Milan, Italy (2007); De Garage Cultuurcentrum, Mechelen, Belgium (2006); III Biennial of Valencia, Spain (2005); S.M.A.K., Gent, Belgium (2004); Rufino Tamayo Museum, Mexico City, Mexico (2002); Center for Contemporary Art Luigi Pecci, Prato, Italy (2002); Kunstverein Augsburg, Germany (2000); Musée de Beaux Arts, Gent, Belgium (1999); Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation, Venice, Italy (1997). Amongst the institutions that hosted his most recent solo shows, we mention: Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Saint-Etienne Métropole, Saint-Etienne (2014); Galleria Continua San Gimignano, San Gimignano (2015), Tan Guobin Museum, Changsha (2017), Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Cuba, Habana (2017-2018).
