About The Spaces

Fiona Ackerman had her first professional solo show in 2009 in Vancouver—and since then her career as a much-admired artist has taken her into international circles. Ackerman is known for re-inventing herself—for dancing between two styles—abstraction and realism with ease. This is one of the Paper Trail series of paintings she recently created—in black, gray and white…expressive markings and passages tone on tone dance across the canvas.

“The Spaces is an exploration of monochromatic painting, creating contrast through tone and application.” Fiona Ackerman

Born in Ottawa in 1978, 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, videos 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.
