The Fiona Ackerman Expeditions Through the Mirror painting collection looks at the artist's studio through an unusual perspective.

If we could only see our surroundings through a mirror, we would only be seeing the reflection of things rather than the actual items themselves. In the same way, the Fiona Ackerman paintings portray various aspects of her studio through a distorted point of view. In one image, all we see are unfinished paintings and sculptures stacked against a wall, while in another we see paintbrushes sitting on her desk.

The Fiona Ackerman Expeditions Through the Mirror paintings give us glimpses of her surroundings that seem altered and disconnected from each other as they are taken out of context from the rest of the room.
