paintings by Tomma Abts... excellent Tomma Abts review by Adrian Searle...
from another article by Adrian Searle - "Tomma Abts' small paintings look as though they belong to some forgotten, between-the-wars European abstract movement, yet she has said that what excites her is the idea of work so unplaceable that it might point to the "art of the future". Her paintings are a peculiar balance of ornament and rigour, and demonstrate less a pictorial logic than illogical intuition. How can the inexpressive be so elegiac? At their best they are strange meditations on meaninglessness and emptiness."
this is the newest... from this year. i'm happy to see it on the brick wall like this, because the presentation is similar to what i'm doing for my next BIG UPCOMING SHOW!! can't say anymore... it is TOP SECRET! i am still in negotiations.
