Rosa Serra

Vic, Barcelona, 1944

Rosa Serra belongs to the generation that led to a break in the sculpture olotina by the three-dimensionality discovered under the influence of the great teacher, sculptural Lluís Curós. Without ever losing her personality and style, Rosa Serra was seduced by artists such as Clara, Maillol, and Michel Angelo..

In 1952 she moved to Olot, where she currently works and resides.

In 1970 he entered the Llus Carbonell academy, where she studied drawing and painting, and two years later he entered the Olot School of Fine Arts, where for three years she studied drawing, ceramics and painting and engraving.

She is known for her beautiful patinas, which make her bronze pieces seem like they are carved out of stone.

She had his first individual exhibition in Barcelona in 1972, and from 1973 she devoted herself to sculpture.

ln her work, influenced by Henry Moore, dominates the risky line of curves rubicund in nude figures, roundness rotund and harmonica that just by defining the identity of most of their production, both public and private.

In 2008 he received the Cross of Sant Jordi from the Generalitat of Catalonia
