About the Work
Layers of gestural lines, squiggles, swipes and sprays of colour -- yellow, sky blue, orange, red, canary yellow -- are packed into an intimate square format. This lively mixed media composition on paper is pinned in place by a central black oval. Since completing her BFA through Concordia and ECIAD, Ackerman has exhibited across Canada and in Europe (Germany & France). She was longlisted for the Sobey Prize in 2015, received an honorable mention for the Kingston Prize for Canadian Portraiture in 2009, and was included in Carte Blanche 2: Painting, a survey and showcase painting in Canada (published by The Magenta Foundation, fall 2008). In 2012, Ackerman spent 6 months working from a studio in Berlin.
