Saccoccio’s Portrait series combines numerous contrasting styles of application from drips and blurs to spills and smudges; a built up maze of overlapping colour and marks makes it difficult to know where one layer ends and the next begins. The further they travel from their original, representational source the more they take on their own material presence; a visual dance emerges between painting styles and mark making from throughout art history that Saccoccio has blended together but deftly avoided blending in.
