American female painter, Jackie Saccoccio has sadly passed away. She was reported to have died today November 4 2020 at the age of 57. The cause of her death or what led to her sad demise has not been made public.

Since the 1970s Saccoccio has experimented with randomness in her work. She creates her compositions by pouring oil, pressing one canvas on top of another and pulling them across each other, and scraping through dry paint.

In January 2020 her show “Femme Brut” opened in two galleries in New York City. One of those galleries, Van Doren Waxter, has represented Saccoccio since 2008. The two galleries include 30 paintings, prints and drawings. The artist has works at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, MCA in Chicago, and the Museum of Fine Art in Boston.

She was someone who made the world a better place. Our loss, not mine particularly. Her husband, her daughter, her close network of loves and giggle-buddies.
