Eva Rothschild’s sculpted forms are minimal; her shapes are iconic (circles, lines) or familiarly organic (strings of balls, curves and bumpy tubes). Rothschild often makes objects that interact with their space – either site-specific installations or works that respond via color or form to their location. The viewers’ experience matters both physically and intellectually. Rothschild revels in the color schemes of her works so that a transition from one color to another is purposeful and powerful. The space around the work is noticed, delineated, and essential to each visitor’s encounter with it.
Eva Rothschild received her BA in Fine Art from the University of Ulster, Belfast and her MFA from Goldsmith’s College, London. In 2012 she created a site-specific installation as part of the series "Sightings" at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas in 2012, and has had solo exhibitions at the Kunstverein Hanover in 2011, and at la Conservera Centro de Arte Contemporeana in Ceuti/Murcia. She was awarded the Childrens Art Commission at the Whitechapel Gallery in London and the 2009 Duveens Commission by the Tate Britain. Rothschild’s work is included in the collections of Tate Gallery, London; Carnegie Museum Collection, Pittsburgh; Arts Council Collection, London; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; and Ebrahim Melamid/Honart Museum, Tehran.
