The Turner Prize for Tomma Abts

German painter Tomma Abts won the Turner Prize in London last night. She deserves it, says Sebastian Preuss: "It's a good choice. Tomma Abts is one of the truly relevant contemporary painters, too long overshadowed by the trendy new figurative style. Her small compositions, emerging from seemingly endless overpainting, breathe new life into geometric modernity. They are wondrous in their graphic elegance. Classic forms and a touch of the current spirit of retro-design emerge in such an inimitable way, that one can sink into each one of these typically 48 x 38 centimetre paintings for hours on end."
