PRESS RELEASE

 

Corbett vs. Dempsey is pleased to announce three simultaneous solo exhibitions: Arturo Herrera, Books; John Sparagana, Crowds & Powder; and Jackie Saccoccio, Portraits.

Jackie Saccoccio’s brilliant work was brought to the attention of Corbett vs. Dempsey by Christopher Wool.  In Portraits, her first show in Chicago, the New York based artist presents three medium-sized paintings, each one featuring a head-like oval form, all of them technically dazzling with skeins of parallel dribbles that acutely change direction, forming a veritable undercarriage for hazy and more definite shapes.  Saccoccio is a wizard-like colorist, culling hues that shouldn’t work together into something at once confident and unsettling.
