Artist Statement
Roman Serra was born in Detroit, MI. He attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago BFA-2008 and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts MFA-2011 I strive to make images that are full of energy. Abstraction has always interested me because I believe that an image can invoke a feeling. Sometimes the process becomes the most important aspect of my work. Among my most sacred techniques is the “breath technique”. I use my breath to draw with paint (in all mediums). It is something that is crucial to my work and I include my breath in nearly every piece I make. I want each piece to feel like a gift for the viewer.
