Tomma Abts

Exhibits

London-based artist Tomma Abts (German, born 1967) has a remarkably singular and rigorous approach to contemporary painting. Since 1998, she has remained committed to producing acrylic and oil-on-canvas works, mainly in the same 19.8 x 15 inch (48 x 38 centimeter) portrait format. Abts’s works are powerfully magnetic—simultaneously muted and charged, offbeat and rich. This exhibition, co-organized by the Art Institute and the Serpentine Galleries, London, brings together the artist’s work from 2002 through 2017, offering a rare opportunity to experience Abts’s distinctive vision.
