Hungarian born artist Rita Ackermann presents her most recent series The Chalkboard Paintings alongside a selection of early works that first gained her widespread acclaim in the New York art scene of the early 90s.

 In the drawings, collages and paintings on display, the artist continues her trademark superposition of images, characters and narratives, whilst adding a new layer of erasure. Rendering nearly invisible the overall image, the nymphetish girls who have featured in her paintings since the very beginning remain ever so desirable and enigmatic as our favourite objects of desire.
