About Everyone is trying to make a bigger splash

Vancouver-based artist Fiona Ackerman’s abstract paintings are uniquely bold compositions that explore colour, texture and pattern. This attractive composition has layered shapes in bright colours–azure blue (the colour of Caribbean water), purple, yellow, orange and black.

“Art is the site where ideas converge—the essence of what we’re seeing, reading, hearing, and experiencing.” Fiona Ackerman

Originally from Montreal, Fiona Ackerman studied painting at Concordia University and completed a BFA at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2002. She has held more than 20 solo exhibitions internationally. Fiona’s studio practice extends beyond painting to include several large-scale murals, video and other public art projects. In her free time, she writes and records music and videos, often working with other musicians. She currently lives and works in Vancouver BC.
