In no explicit order of significance these have been – sculptress Rebecca Warren who was the fancied sizzling favorite with many bookies, “billboard artist” Mark Titchner – and eventually movie maker Phil Collins…(No not him of Genesis fame!).
When the judges forged their votes nonetheless 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 come in useful – nonetheless its the publicity that Tomma will get from successful thats the actually vital factor right here.
What does Tomma Abts do? Properly she really paints summary artwork; often 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.

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

48 x 38 cms – precisely. These are the size 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.

All in all I believe 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 stated in regards to the paintings of earlier Turner Prize winners! I base my opinion after all on Tommas prize successful work. I’d 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 imagine that its completely posible that Tomma Abts will go on to change into a family identify – inside her personal lifetime…After all she may additionally disappear with out hint from the media – and our minds within the blink of a watch, for exactly the identical causes.
