About the Work

Passages of crimson, silver, gold with licks of pink and lime green acrylic paint are brushed, dripped, sprayed and shaped into a lively narrative. This masterful composition inspired by plant species of an herbarium is a playful exploration of color, texture and pattern. 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).
