For the past three years, Serr worked on Dancers, a series of black and white, figurative drawings. In the spring of 2008, in a new studio, she began INDIA INK, an exploration of color.

“Periodically I need to add curry to my palette – the color, smell and taste. That’s what INDIA INK is about.”

While the new work is striking for its emerald greens, lapis blues and rubious reds, it exhibits Serr’s characteristics drawing style and composition.

Almost exactly ten years ago, Serr illustrated Black Birds, White Clouds by Rabindranath Tagore, the Bengali writer, poet, artist and composer. This stochastic book can be seen as part of this exhibition.

“To the finch every morning is a new-born without a name – no day is yesterday.”
– Rabindranath Tagore

This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Ruth Grotenrath and Schomer Lichtner.
