Artist Statement – Thomas Ackermann

As a painter for more than 40 years I have endeavoured to elicit a visceral experience of my paintings for the viewer. My interest is not only WHAT (subject) I’m painting but HOW (process) I physically make a painting. Half my subject is the painting itself. I have developed a very personal way of applying my materials onto the canvas, in spirit, much like Pollock or Frankenthaler dripping or pouring. I am using a 600 year old medium (oil paint) and re-invented (altered) it to suit my unique process. My paint surfaces are either highly reflective (without topical varnishes) or extremely rough and textured. A brush has not touched the final surface.
