Serena Buschi lives and works in Bedford, New York where she creates paper works, and installations with fiber and mixed media that reflect aspects of personal and collective identity. Being a product of two cultures and varied traditions, her work expresses the social, cultural and ecological shifts that affect experience and identity.
She conveys the idea of time as if by offering glimpses and fleeting moments through layered imagery playing with opacity and transparency in a way that is hauntingly scared, wounded and imperfect. Her fiber work is full of vibrant color, a constant within her work, and serves the intention as a tool for mending and repair or as a connective tissue in the form of collective cellular structures or nets. Buschi's background in fashion design is reflected in the process of her draping materials together before finalizing them into something that is both layered and ephemeral.
Buschi is currently undertaking her Masters of Fine Arts degree at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston Massachusetts. She holds a Masters in Art and Art Education from Teachers College, Columbia University New York. Her work is in numerous private collections. She has been an Art Educator for the last 23 years in the New York State public school system, and is currently teaching art education and the International Baccalaureate Visual Arts program in Dobbs Ferry, NY.
