About Soprano

This expressive abstract painting is by Fiona Ackerman, a Vancouver-based artist known for her beautiful contemporary work. With ‘Soprano,’ Ackerman has created a melange of images in expressive and bold form, graphic lines and spheres that swirl about the canvas. Rendered in a subtle palette of grays, white, a touch of pink and melon punctuated by black.

“…the abstraction of the final painting is suggestive to me of glass breaking apart. What finally came together is a ‘shattering.’ I named the painting Soprano, a wink at the glass-breaking result of reaching a high.” Fiona Ackerman
