Artist Profile


Jackie Saccoccio

b. 1963 Providence RI / Lives and works in West Cornwall CT and NYC

painting 

Jackie Saccoccio invents her paintings on impulse and through chance, building up layers of pours, drips, and gestures. Many of her compositions converge towards the center of the canvas, forming an abstract mass that references and re-imagines the tradition of portraiture as gestural abstraction.

Focused on the properties of her materials, including oil, varnish, and mica - all materials used by Renaissance painters - Saccoccio pours,  tips, drips, and uses other processes and techniques descended from the Abstract Expressionists. Her large-scale paintings, comprising some fifty layers of paint, require intense physical exertion and concentration.
