Tomma Abts. 2008; 135 pages; hardcover; 60 col. ill. This volume on 2006 Turner Prize winner Tomma Abts is published in conjunction with the first individual presentation of the artist’s work in the United States at the New Museum. The survey explores how the artist creates forms that delight the eye and challenge the mind. While working within strict parameters, Abts has reinvented abstraction for the twenty-first century. This volume, the artist’s first extensive monograph, provides a comprehensive survey of her work, with full-color images of thirty-seven paintings and eighteen drawings, as well as three specially commissioned essays. Curated by Laura Hoptman. Exhibition Catalogue.
