Tomma Abts

German, (works in London), born 1967

The recipient of the 2006 Turner Prize for Contemporary Art, Abts is a committed abstractionist-both in paintings and works on paper-who challenges herself to make compelling compositions without any preconceptions before putting paint to canvas or pencil to paper. She always confines herself to a relatively modest scale, giving emphasis to the personal aspect of her artmaking and embodiment of the handmade.
Ball point pen, pencil, colored pencil on paper
33 x 23 1/2in. (83.8 x 59.7cm)

Seattle Art Museum acknowledges that we are on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish and the customary territories of the Suquamish and Muckleshoot Peoples. As a cultural and educational institution, we honor our ongoing connection to these communities past, present, and future. We also acknowledge the urban Native peoples from many Nations who call Seattle their home.
