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.
