In no specific order of significance these had been – sculptress Rebecca Warren who was the fancied sizzling favorite with many bookies, “billboard artist” Mark Titchner – and at last movie maker Phil Collins…(No not him of Genesis fame!).
When the judges solid their votes nevertheless it was Tomma Abts who got here out on high. She gained twenty 5 thousand british kilos and naturally the Turner Prize itself. I’m certain the cash will turn out to be useful – nevertheless its the publicity that Tomma will get from successful thats the actually vital factor right here.
What does Tomma Abts do? Nicely she truly paints summary artwork; normally in oils or acrylics. – one thing of a novelty for the Turner Prize – some would say! Tomma Abts was initially chosen for her solo artwork exhibitions at Kunsthalle Basel, Switzerland, and Greengrassi, London.

- As well as the Tate states that Tomma Abts “enriches the language of summary artwork” .

The photographs or work of Tomma Abts are created by the repetiton of assorted geometrical shapes on a base of wealthy color. Personally – I dont suppose that Tommas method to portray is especially authentic.

48 x 38 cms – precisely. These are the scale of each Tomma Abts portray. Im unsure fairly why Tomma chosen these dimensions. Clearly she finds them interesting and I suppose they make for a really compact portray.
When creating titles for her work apparently Tomma merely plucks one from a dictionary of German first names! Titles like “Veeke” for instance had been created on this manner. For my part that is absolutely solely barely extra attention-grabbing than numbering every image!
All in all I feel that Tomma Abts creates summary artwork that’s fairly accessible to the general public at massive. That is one thing that maybe couldn’t be mentioned in regards to the art work of earlier Turner Prize winners! I base my opinion after all on Tommas prize successful work. I might go additional and state that I can not conceive of a Tomma Abts creation offending anybody – even barely.
In the long run its simply my private opinion however I do consider that its totally posible that Tomma Abts will go on to develop into a family title – inside her personal lifetime…In fact she may additionally disappear with out hint from the media – and our minds within the blink of an eye fixed, for exactly the identical causes.
