Tomma Abts: Mainly Drawings

Text by Bob Nickas, Katy Siegel, Heidi Zuckerman.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Tomma Abts: Mainly Drawings</I>German artist Tomma Abts (born 1967) creates her paintings and drawings using a rigorous process that combines the rational with the intuitive. Starting with no external source material and no preconceived idea of the final result, Abts makes complex abstract compositions that ultimately take as their subject the process of their own creation. This publication accompanies her exhibition at the Aspen Art Museum, which is the first to survey the artist's extensive drawing practice. It features 41 works from 1996 to the present—many never before exhibited—and includes new works created specifically for the exhibition. The catalogue also features essays by Bob Nickas, Katy Siegel and Heidi Zuckerman.

Tomma Abts: Mainly Drawings

Tomma Abts: Mainly Drawings

"At a time when many artists seem intent on endless production, as if part of the meaning of their work resides within supply and demand, or repetition, whether intentional or compulsive, Tomma Abts understands that art takes time," Bob Nickas writes in the Aspen Art Museum's new book of Abts' drawings. "This is one subject of her work, even if never directly rendered. What she does show us, what she very often outlines and delineates and shadows for added emphasis, is that a painting or a drawing is a representation of itself, of having been made. When we consider her works on paper, they compel us to ask: What does it mean to draw? What is a drawing? And to what in this world are we drawn? In the work of Tomma Abts, there is a purposeful and continuous circling around an activity, to create and regard an image that might otherwise elude being fixed, not so easily articulated yet pursued nonetheless, an image of the process of thought, the triangulation of the hand and the eye and the mind."
