The Search for Electronic Literature Leads to the CELL Project

Home-T’s entry into the music business was a self-produced song ‘Mr. Fire” written by co-founder Junior Gentles on their own Home-T Label. Many singles followed on the Mushroom Label: a cover of the pop hit “Stop Children,”  “Dedication,” a song written by the legendary BB Seaton, and a cover of The Wailing Wailers “ Soul Shake Down Party.”

The Art of Serena Bocchino



The year 2014 marked a special anniversary for east coast painter Serena Bocchino – her 30th year exhibiting in the New York area.

She ended that year with a memorable show on the west coast at ArtHaus Gallery in San Francisco’s SOMA,  an exhibit entitled “Then and Now,” featuring works she created between 1993 and 2014.
When you approached ArtHaus deep in the heart of SOMA, you were bound to be intrigued by a Bocchino creation on the gallery’s glass entry.  “Rock Boppers” is a panel which was installed behind the door, enamel on acrylic, with the title painted on the gallery entrance.   The illusion of a door as art drew you in.

Bocchino’s art is centered around line-based paintings, inspired by the music of jazz masters  – John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker.   Initially she worked with oil paint and graphite on canvas, eventually moving to enamel-based paint with graphite.  Her lines on canvas correspond to improvisation in jazz.  Graphite lines were drawn below the surface of oil paint in her early works.  In later paintings, the lines poured in enamel-based paint are set above the surface.
