The now out of print Issue #7 of THE international with Rita Ackermann, featuring drawings, collages, photographs and new paintings that were inspired by and created during Rita Ackermann's stay in Texas. Dry air of Texas, drawings of girls, crashed cars, a story of local cowboy... This is her diary. The new paintings are much rougher with powerful brushstrokes, but very dynamic and more evocative than ever.
New York City based artist Rita Ackerman was born in Budapest in 1968. She studied at the University of Fine Arts in Budapest and The New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture from the years of 1989 to 1992. Ackermann invented images that became instant sensations, perturbing young girls that are now part of the universe of global imagery. Her drawings and paintings between 1993-95 depict compositions of adolescent female figures of clonelike multiples engaging in various self-destructive and hazardous activities. Her early works with their ambiguous presence serve as bridges between high and low culture, just as the myths and folk tales which often serve as merits to Ackermann's compositions. Later, Ackerman would abandon the figure, erasing the very matter of her own work, in a complex layering of visual language oscillating between abstraction and figuration into a subconscious unfolding of form—concealed deeply in the abstraction of the omnipresence.
