About the work
Tomma Abts’ precise drawings and paintings have a contemplative intimacy and formal rigour that evoke a feeling of the timeless. Through an intuitive and experimental process of working and overlaying, abstract forms and patterns emerge from lush, muted layers of colour, creating a kind of visual conversation or maybe even a psychological portrait.
Usually working in A4 and always in portrait format, Abts has created this limited edition for the Whitechapel Gallery as a pair of lithographic prints and one of the special annual Whitechapel Gift editions for 2012, all proceeds go to towards assisting the Gallery education programme to help support the next generation of talented artists.
