Ends in 21 days
Full of unknowns, 2020 has been a year of uncompromising instability. Long-existing issues of racism and climate change continue to come to the fore, atop the Covid 19 pandemic. “Knife Edge”, Saccoccio’s second exhibition with the gallery, showcases a variety of interrelated pieces across mediums of ink, oil pastel and colored pencil, in addition to her signature oil painting. She looks to her painting heroines, Joan Mitchell, Elizabeth Murray and Helen Frankenthaler for solace and inspiration, as they tried to make sense of their own tumultuous times through an abstract language. ‘Portrait (Joan)’ refers to Joan Mitchell while ‘Scars’, a large ink drawing on yupo paper, emotes layers of Frankenthaleresque pours of translucent purple and gold inks, smothered by deep violet webbings. Each piece is an expression of the artist’s voice amid a world in crisis.
