Sergio Roffo, American. (1953 - ).
Sergio Roffo has been inspired by the work of American traditional painters such as Inness and Bierstadt,
among others. Roffo's representations of coastal landscapes reveal a luminous, masterful feeling. As you
view his art, you will discover a precise sense of value and atmospheric perspective that conveys a relaxed
sense of calmness; a characteristic that defines and informs all of his works.
Sergio Roffo's captivating depictions of the New England landscape have been included in a variety
of museum exhibitions and have earned him many awards, including two prestigious Grumbacher Gold
Medals and the Yankee Sagendorph Award presented by Yankee Magazine.
In 1994, Roffo was the winner of the Massachusetts Duck Stamp, winning on his first attempt, where
others spend years trying. He holds the honor of being one of the youngest artists to be designated
a Copley Master by the Copley Society of Boston. An elected member of the Guild of Boston Artists,
Sergio's work is included in many private and publicly owned collections. He has also been selected
for inclusion in numerous publications, such as Cape Cod Life and Down East Magazine.
A serious artist, Roffo continually strives to capture the elusive essence that is Nature. "My mission
is trying to convey to the viewer the spirituality and sacredness of my work, indicating the harmony of
nature through color and light. As artists, our creative goals will never be accomplished. We will always
be students of nature, because nature does it so beautifully. We live each day passionately, others only
dream of!" Mr. Roffo resides in Scituate, MA with his wife and two daughters.
