Giving Form to the Intangible

The challenge is to create an authentic, primal reality, as vital as any living experience in the elemental world of nature, including human nature. The process is inclusive. I initiate it with color and gesture, maintaining its raw form by working with imperfections and oddities as well as reverence and its transcendent moments. There is a pulse, a heartbeat, physical action and a seeking to convey and to understand my resonance in the world. Tangible poetry is the outcome.

Saccoccio’s painting has evolved since leaving the dense and linear environment of New York City, where she worked as a painter and attended graduate school at the School of Visual Arts. Eleven years amidst the expansive beauty of Santa Barbara – with its subtle qualities of light and atmosphere, and its brilliant and earthy colors – has irreversibly changed Saccoccio’s visual vocabulary.
