Biography

Rossella Mocerino was born in Tuscany. Actually she lives and works in New York in Greenwich Village. She studied drawing to the NY City League of Art Scholars, then she studied anatomy with Robert Hale of the NY City League of Art Scholars, then tempera with the artist Olivera Sajkovic, then art history with Sarah Lawrence in Florence.

She shows hers works all over the world in solo and group exhibitions from 1981. Rossella Mocerino exhibits at the III Millennium Art Gallery from 2010. She had solo exhibitions and two group exhibitions at the "Contemporary Art Group Exhibition Biennale di Venezia", editions 2007 and 2013.

Art Director's Advice
Art Gallery III Millennium

In 2010 I first had the occasion to experience the works of Rossella BLUE Mocerino. Five years have passed and the painting of BLUE has shown a considerable development. Her current work displays a sharp formal progression and a technique that yields a more effective, more refined, more confident and more personal expression.

I believe that even the level of the content has been positively affected by this path of refinement. If before it sent a message of not renouncing form for content and of the sacrosanct centrality of the human figure in art, now her work is set to search for ideas that go decidedly beyond the celebrative beauty of the Carnival mask.

The designs are more tightly controlled and color goes beyond a merely descriptive character; it starts to cut ties with reality in order to turn toward an emotional dimension, more sensory and inductive. The ancient Venetian tradition has been truly integrated into the dominant personal artistic vision of Rossella BLUE.

In this art which arises and moves in the world of genuine, simple and serene objectives, perhaps even unaware of the dramatic nature of "mascheramento" which is totally European in nature, a demon is developing that absorbs the pulverized disorder of human things to eject them harmonized and unified in a new pictorial image. Rossella BLUE makes herself in that sense less American, more Romantic in that solid Romanticism that rediscovers the past from the Renaissance. Rossella BLUE has observed contemporary art, I believe, especially the works of Mario Eremita from which she has admired the so-called "light in color". She has taken this difficult aspect and she has pushed forward with courage in this complex technique; and it is exactly this ability that allows the artist a great power of communication and, to her works, a special emotional charge.
