Hauser & Wirth is proud to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Hungarian born, New York-based artist Rita Ackermann. Ackermann's 'Mama' series deploy figurative line drawings only to be obscured by expanses of colour alike. Evoking the foundations of ancestry, Ackermann's figures and motifs rise to the surface only to dissolve and reappear elsewhere again. Her study is one of relationships, between both figuration and abstraction and to the enigmatic balance of personal and collective narratives within.
