Description

Rita Ackermann’s vibrant, large-scale ‘Mama’ paintings layer drawings with applications and scrapings of impasto and oil stick, expressing complex histories and emotions. The immersive nature of the ‘Mama’ suite is fully illustrated and expressed in this book, with a critical essay by Gianni Jetzer that explores and contextualizes Rita’s evolution as an artist and the significance of the ‘Mama’ works, complementing filmmaker Harmony Korine’s fake interview with Ackermann and a tribute to the artist by Scott Griffin. The importance of Ackermann’s drawings in her painting practice is elucidated in a poem by the artist and seen in the book’s robust plate section, which features all of the ‘Mama’ paintings made to date.

The Artist

Rita Ackermann

The opposing impulses of creation and destruction mark the touchstone of the Hungarian-born, New York-based artist Rita Ackermann’s practice, which continues to evolve and manifest itself in the shift from representation to abstraction.
