Margaret Ackland

Musing on everyday life found in newspapers, online media, and her own surroundings, Sydney-based Margaret Ackland depicts teacups, florals, and little glass bottles in freehand watercolours. Working directly onto the paper allows for layers of paint, each stroke holding energy.

The artist reveals, ‘my work takes as its reference observations both large and small, profound and whimsical — I document the many small moments that fill the narrative of a life, as well as continuing to reference events that shape our understanding of this often bewildering world.’
