Rita Ackermann: New Paintings

The opposing impulses of creation and destruction mark the touchstone of the Hungarian-born, New York-based artist Rita Ackermann’s practice, which continues to evolve and manifest itself in the shift from representation to abstraction. Ackermann’s compositions occupy a space in this shift, where human forms simultaneously disappear and re-emerge. In this series of new paintings, which include ‘Sister’ and ‘Mama’ in their titles, Ackermann traces movement of the body and expands her expressive use of colour and pencil marks.
