HAUSER & WIRTH PUBLISHERS

Rita Ackermann: Mama

Text by Gianni Jetzer, Harmony Korine, Scott Griffin, Rita Ackermann

Tensions of creation and destruction in the latest paintings from Rita Ackermann, shifting between representation and abstraction

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.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Financial Times

Baya Simons

For these paintings, Ackermann allowed her subconscious to guide her mark-making as she layered pastels, paint, china marker and oils, which were then scraped away to reveal the drawings below. The paintings “combine the elements of line and gesture, leading the conversation into the unknown”.
