This event has ended.

For this exhibition, Saccoccio will present a singular, monumental work on canvas coupled with a transparent film construction upon the glass facade. In her most ambitious work to date, she continues her engagement with abstract painting in its most immersive and expansive iterations. Viewing the painting from outside the gallery through the film, the work appears as a roiling mass. Upon entering the space, the wall-sized canvas, measuring fifteen feet wide, and the gossamer of the windows transform the space between into a mercurial third layer of the painting environment. Throughout her career, Saccoccio has carried the tradition of abstract painting through constant invention: in One to One, her ever-alchemical practice incorporates the luminosity and depth of traditional oil painting techniques into her ever- changing, unapologetically innovative approach towards abstraction. Non-sequential transparencies of resin and varnish along the surface of the painting echo this shifting perception.
