Margaret Ackland - The Watercolour News

Margaret Ackland - The Watercolour News

from June 04, 2016 @ 10:00 AM until July 24, 2016 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Sydney-based painter Margaret Ackland describes her work as an ‘accidental history’.

The Watercolour News is an iterative series of over one hundred watercolour paintings, based on events described by the daily newspaper.  Beginning at 6am every day Ackland sits at her dining room table and reads the newspaper.  Using images inspired by the articles, she creates one new painting per day.

There is no rigid system to her choice of subjects; rather she responds to the topics as presented to her.  Some days it is news, other days social snaps or sport.  The often unintentional contrasts that occur in news media ultimately become Ackland’s subject, informed by her abiding interest in politics on both a local and global scale.
