Whether through landscape, portraiture or small still lifes Sydney artist Margaret Ackland has been keenly observing and recording traces of human experience for more than 35 years. Drawing on her own observations of the world, sourced from newspaper clippings, online media and the comings and goings of her own daily life, Ackland’s images quietly shine light on ephemeral moments both personal and political. What emerges from her delicate, often humorous and always sensitive small scale paintings encompasses a whole, worldly and fully relatable experience. As a suite they offer a glimpse into the quiet reception of the everyday, interspersed with pivotal events from world politics.
