Serena Perrone uses various mediums to create both large-scale prints and drawings and smaller, intimate works. Uniquely combining techniques such as woodcut printing with hand-mixed metallic inks and delicate drawings in silverpoint and goldpoint, Perrone is a master of her highly refined use of materials. Images of real and fantastical scenes blend together to create a narrative that is similar to a surrealist painting or film.
Perrone has had solo exhibitions the List Gallery, Swarthmore College, Swarthmore, PA; Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis, MO; and the RISD Museum, Providence, RI. Perrone has exhibited her work in a number of prestigious group shows including The Print Center, Philadelphia, The International Print Center New York; and the Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit, MI. Perrone’s work is represented in the collections of the Library of Congress, Philadelphia Museum of Art, RISD Museum, Smith College Museum of Art and Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
