  • Catalogue Essay

    Hungarian-born, New York-based artist Rita Ackermann studied at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts and the New York Studio School. Working primarily in painting, collage and drawing, her conceptions occupy a space between the figurative and the abstract, where human forms simultaneously disappear and re-emerge. The opposing impulses of creation and destruction mark the touchstone of Ackermann’s practice, which continues to evolve and manifest itself in the shift from representation to abstraction.
