Combining scientific gesture with tautological sign
Serse was born in San Paolo del Piave in 1952 and now lives and works in Trieste. The works of Serse, executed with a complex approach to graphite in a play of light and shadow, create an abstract landscape of a meticulous, almost photographic descriptivism, which occupies a temporal suspension. Serse is a self-taught artist with a scientific training. He has an attitude towards practicing art that is deeply scientific, even in his gesture; design is seen as experimentation and his sign is tautological. Indeterminacy, that is, looking at the work with many points of view, is another way to approach Serse's art. He presents nature, not a landscape. Serse is open to the idea of the sublime, the prodigious aspect of man's fright compared to the elements of nature. He draws nature but speaks of man. In this, we can see the artist's link with his city of residence, Trieste, a great literary city, that welcomed James Joyce, among other writers. Serse’s works are present in numerous galleries, collections and museums, in Italy as well as in some of the most international and vibrant cities, such as Beijing, New York, Paris.
