San Paolo di Piave (Treviso), 1952
Based in Trieste, the artist, having dismissed colour, consistently researches graphite drawing. From Serse’s graphite sparks, one of the most intense reinterpretations of the landscape-theme in contemporary art: seas, aquatic surfaces, plants reflections on the water, cloudy skies, high mountains, snowy forests and natural spaces lacking human figures and transformed by light and shadow. For Serse, as a medium, graphite “allows both making the tautological gesture of drawing, and realizing a work that does not lie about its nature of pure drawing”.
