Jackie Saccoccio

Jackie Saccoccio  Portrait: Insist  2013  oil and mica on linen  106"x79"

Saccoccio's painting is exuberant and beautiful. She develops the painting by pouring layers of oil paint and mica in the middle of the stretched linen and turning it as the paint dries. I like the performative aspect of the work and the unusual "drawing" effects she achieves during the process. She seems unafraid to destroy elements of beauty to gain the ultimate statement she is after.
