Hauser & Wirth Somerset is currently presenting 'Turning Air Blue', an exhibition of new works by Hungarian born, New York-based artist Rita Ackermann.
Quoted from the Press Release:
The first paintings the viewer is introduced to 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.
The exhibition continues with Turning Air blue and Nudes. The paintings titled Turning Air blue are large-scale pigment paintings on canvas where translucent figures suggest a feminine shape.
The exhibition runs until 1st January 2018 and features alongside Josephsohn / Märkli : A Conjunction, featuring works by the late Swiss sculptor Josephsohn alongside the architectural drawings of his long-time friend, Swiss architect Peter Märkli. I was most drawn to the amazing large scale green abstract paintings. I have visited at different times of day and in varying light conditions and the paintings change with every viewing. Well worth a visit.
