Bruce Ackerson's considerable talent has won him a prominent place among the sophisticated art circles of New York City and the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant. Ackerson quickly established a following for his rich, painterly technique and quirky subject matter. The artist uses a consistent format of medium-to-large-sized, square works painted in oils on panel. These paintings are distinguished by their high vantage points and richly textured surfaces. From a birds-eye view, Ackerson presents scenes which are an imaginative take on popular culture, modern life and the hidden world of the human psyche. His beautiful, agitated brushwork adds to the tension inherent in his unusual depictions, making his works both compelling and highly appealing.
