Generating polarity charged by forms in opposition, Ackermann’s KLINERAPE paintings merge the masculinity of Franz Kline’s iconic expressionism with provocatively sensual lines that signal the universal feminine. Suggesting concurrent discord and reconciliation, the artist’s sinuous colours and expansive brushstrokes envelope an engagement of both form and allusion. Nevertheless, the images provoke immediate readability as ubiquitous common signage.
