 Roman Serra

"The artist when effective, compels us to consider whether order and chaos exist separately or must occupy the mind simultaneously by each necessitating its apparent opposite." -Roger Denson 2015


A word from the artist


      " I strive to make images that are full of energy. abstraction is my voice, I use paint because it is fluid, it transforms and tells a story. . Sometimes the physical process can become the focus of my work. I use certain processes because they are unique in their ability to make  marks. Fire darkens my canvases, my breath gives them light and air. "
