Eva Rothschild is an artist who lives and works in London. Rothschild is renowned for creating an ever-updating cast of sculptural objects, often with interdependent sharp geometric forms which manifest as dynamic episodic compositions that emphasise the relationship between balance and support. Bringing together a myriad of materials, her works draw influence from minimal art of the 1960s and ‘70s, transcendent materiality, classical architecture as well as popular culture.
Rothschild represented Ireland in the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia (2019) and has undertaken large-scale commissions for Tate Britain’s Duveen Galleries (2009) and Public Art Fund, New York (2011).
Solo exhibitions include: The Shrinking Universe, Irish Pavilion, Biennale Arte, Venice (2019); Kosmos, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne and touring to City Gallery, Wellington (2018-19); Alternative to Power, The New Art Gallery Walsall (2016); Hugh Lane Museum, Dublin (2014); What the Eye Wants, Modern Art, London (2014).
