In a departure from the fictionalized, narrative landscapes of her prior works, Serena Perrone’s most recent print editions delight in facts of the natural world, albeit unexpected and dreamlike ones. Her abiding interest in the psychological aspects of landscape remains central; these are works “about memory,” she says, developed across carefully considered stages of distance in time and geography. Both suites were initiated during an extended stay in Italy in 2014, but Perrone intentionally allowed months or years to pass, waiting to formalize the images after her return to the US.
