Portrait (Scarred Faceless) abstract art painting by American painter Jackie Saccoccio

A society at the precipice of collapse, in gradual disintegration. Where words fail, abstract art in all its chaotic, dizzying and yet mesmerizing glory takes over: American painter Jackie Saccoccio presents her expressive solo exhibition “Knife Edge” at THE CLUB in Ginza, Tokyo.

In “Knife Edge”, Saccoccio showcases a society on the precipice of absolute disorder. Her signature oil painting is accompanied by ink, oil pastels, gouache, and even colored pencil, against canvasses of linen, paper, and yupo. Her works express a sense of distress and anxiety, a testament to monumental challenge in a world plagued by multiple crises, all overlapping in one single year. Dark oils obscure chaotic sprays of vibrant paint. Inks and pastels cut across canvas in frenzied, hapless shapes and angles.

According to Saccocio, “[i]t is my hope that the complexity of the distinct layers in my work portray a state of psychological unease, that of a society at odds with itself.”

She adds that “Knife Edge” is not only an act of creative, artistic expression, but also an act of “resistance to the situation that we have worked ourselves into.”
