Debra Scacco

Debra Scacco (b. 1976, New York) is a contemporary artist whose practice centers around themes of displacement, memory, guilt and fear. Frequently working with extracts from her diaries, her deeply personal works reflect the most basic human desires: to love, to be loved, and simply to belong.

In 2012, Scacco was the first Artist-in-Residence at the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island Museum. Her work has featured in Los Angeles Times, ArtInfo, and Art in America among others. She is represented by Marine Contemporary, Los Angeles.
