In the artist's first exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Monaco, Hungarian-born, New York-based artist Rita Ackermann presents a brand new body of works from her 'Mama' series. The exhibition consists of paintings on canvas which reveal her persisting interrogation of line, colour and form. In Ackermann's new suite of Mama paintings, repeated imagery is often combined with vivid swathes of color, giving her work a complex visual component that oscillates between abstraction and figuration. Her images are the product of automatic lines and gestures, a subconscious unfolding of form.
