Serritella describes his new work for the exhibition Walking With Softer Steps at Jason Jacques Gallery , as an evolution towards the quieter side of trees and form:
“In my early works there... More > was often an overabundance of branches and thus competing lines within the form. In simplest terms, the sculptures were often ‘busy’.
While they fit the context of the pieces at the time, my philosophies about what I was trying to express evolved. As my work matured I found that texturing the details was becoming second nature and I began focusing more attention on the form. I realized that my goal was to get people to walk with softer steps on this planet. It was this statement that resonated with me so strongly that I then set out to have it reflected in the work.”
Serritella aims to create work that beautifully flows with rhythm and grace.
Hidden within the overall form and the incredible level of realistic detail there is a subtle quietness. A flow. A rhythm. A peace.< Less
