    About The Work

    In these new works, Ackad creates using augmented reality. Thus she begins each piece with things that are real or tangible: items found in her studio, including among other things, open paint jars, a dried rose, and books. Some of these elements are painted in oil and pigment on birch-wood panel while are others are photo impressions adhered to the surface.

    Instead of using digital imagery to alter the ‘real world’ environment that is represented on the painting’s surface, she draws on her imagination, adding in lushly painted red lips, exotic butterflies and live subjects. This merging of real and imagined objects, which the artist sees as belonging together, creates a third world, yet another reality.

    She goes further, asking us “What is reality?” Is everything that we see, touch, or smell truly real or is it only our perception of the physical world, our brain’s analysis of what is perceived through the senses? Ackad’s world is one of alternative facts, where the ephemeral and the imaginary overlap to coexist with the tangible.
