Silvia Serenari is a modern artist, who was born in the Italy, like other established artists such as Massimo, Stefania Ricci, Masbedo (Iacopo Bedogni), Marco Tirelli, and Raffaele Rossi. The classical era of the Romans has exerted a consequential influence on the cultural and intellectual development of Italy, contributing to the uniqueness of the country and its sumptuous artistic heritage. Italy is also the country that epitomizes the Renaissance, “Riniscita” in its original language, which signifies “rebirth”. From the early 1400s, the Renaissance has been a fervent era of cultural and political flourishing, engendering revivals in art, architecture, music, poetry and philosophy. Although significantly affected by the fascism of Mussolini in the modern and contemporary period, Italy has never lost its place as one of the most powerful artistic centres, home to pioneering movements such as Futurism and Arte Povera, as well as the expressive painting of the Transavanguardia and the Minimalism related to the Zero Movement. Some highly eminent Italian artists from the twentieth and twenty first centuries include Giorgio Di Chirico, Giacomo Balla, Giorgio Morandi, Alberto Giacometti, Lucio Fontana, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Francesco Clemente and Mimmo Paladino.
About Silvia Serenari's works
Silvia Serenari is best known for making Digital, Abstraction and Conceptual work. Digital art is at the core of a multifaceted, ever-evolving world where the merging of art and technology gives the artists infinite possibilities to create. As technology progresses and keeps renovating itself, it allows digital art to constantly evolve and expand. It is in the mid 1980s that the term digital art was first introduced, when artist Harold Cohen started using a computer painting program, which led to the creation of AARON – a robotic computer program which autonomously produced artworks. Another pioneer of the genre is non-other than Andy Warhol, who, by manipulating a picture of Debbie Harry on his Commodore Amiga home computer using ProPaint, generated one of the most famous digital artworks ever produced.
Abstraction, in literal terms, means distancing or suppressing one thing from another. When it comes to the visual arts, it can be understood as creating an artwork which moves away from a true representational reference point. The movement was born in the early 20th century, and can be seen as an attempt to release the artist’s creative energy, through freedom and constant self-renewal. In abstract artworks, the object is schematised, with the use of colours and textures, thus creating a fundamentally new idea of reality. Abstract art can be traced back to Impressionism, and paved the way for a significant number of movements, including Cubism, Surrealism, or Abstract Expressionism, which is still considered to be one the most powerful contemporary art movements. Some critically acclaimed artists renowned for their contribution to Abstraction include Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock, or Pablo Picasso.
For a conceptual artist, the artwork needs to detach itself from any sort of traditional representation of what is art, and invite the viewer to enter a world of ideas and concepts, free from the material reality. Indeed, the essence of Conceptualism lies in the fact that the idea behind the artwork has significantly more importance than the completed artwork itself. As a defined movement, Conceptualism first came to be in the late 1960s, with figures such as Sol LeWitt, Lawrence Weiner and Yoko Ono. The most revolutionary feature of Conceptual Art is that the artwork can take the form of anything, from writings to performances, to a derived use of everyday objects - the boundaries of art are thus defied, the tradition is critiqued. Conceptualism has been, and still remains, subject to controversy and debate, due to its tendency to challenge the viewer. As a contemporary movement, is it often used as a medium to defy institutions, societal structures and political systems.
