About Untitled 2017

In this abstract composition, Vancouver-based Fiona Ackerman uses a riot of bright colours to explore organic plant shapes amidst lines and graffiti-inspired markings. Imaginatively curated colours—blue, yellow, orange, black and pink pop against a neutral background.

“Rooted in abstraction, I want to push my work in divergent directions, to surprise myself, and keep the possibilities for my painting wide open. Working in series, I develop a stylistic language specific to the mood or conceptual objectives I'm working on.” 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.

In her free time, she writes and records music and videos, often working with other musicians. She currently lives and works in Vancouver BC.
