Rita Ackerman @ Hauser & Wirth, Somerset

30 September 2017 - 1 January 2018

‘Turning Air Blue’ extends through two galleries and doubles as an organic continuation of Somerset’s rural setting.  Rita Ackerman’s exhibition starts in the Rhoades gallery, which features a body of work titled The Coronation and Massacre of Love. The paintings are large-scale compositions on canvas primed with chalkboard paint, on which washes of white chalk and green and blue pigments have been applied. These Abstract Expressionist-like works are reminiscent of actual chalkboards in a classroom, covered with unintentional erasures and marks, yet they have been conceptually executed by multiple deletions of figurative drawings and landscapes.
