Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

With upright frameworks and perpendicular arrangements, which challenge the bystander as a striking representational structure would, Tomma Abts has built an enthusiastic following for her conceptual paintings. Born in Kiel in Germany in 1967, Abts has decided to name many of her works after German provinces and counties, a choice which amplifies the personification of her thematic process. She rarely decides which subject matter to explore, prior to immersing herself with the particulars of her method, which invariably include a specific canvas size, and her usual operating tools.

"I work inside- out, so to say, and the shapes are almost negative shapes." 
Tomma Abts
 
She favours fast drying industrial paint as well as pigments to expand her sketches form initial, carefully patterned components. Her paintings are often viewed as theoretical, and non-pictorial, and she has indeed decided to distance herself from the German Expressionist school of art: she has consciously decided to avoid conventional forms of characterization.

What is Process Art?

What is Process Art?

It refers to creative sentiment as well as artistic movement where the final product of craft and art is not the artist's principal focus. The term "process" in this art refers to art formation, gathering, the sorting, associating, collating, initiation and patterning of proceedings and happenings. It is concerned with the actual deed and the defining of actions as actual artwork; seeing it as purely human expression. Process art mostly entails inherent motivation, intentionality and rationale. This art is therefore, viewed as a creative process or journey rather than being an end product or a deliverable.
