Selected works by Eva Rothschild

Eva Rothschild
High Times

2005



434 x 40 x 40cm
Through her elegant sculptural compositions, Eva Rothschild explores the apprehensive relationship between objective form and new-age spiritualism. Rothschild approaches art as tantamount to a numinous belief system, where functionless objects become receptacles for immaterial sentiment, both inciting and emitting their own metaphysical auras. Inspired by 60s and 70s minimalism, Rothschild’s sleek designs imbue the impersonal with a raw intimacy by utilising tactile, everyday materials. In High Times, three ‘fountains’ of finely cut leather strips spring forth with graceful avidity, evoking sustained contemplation and emotive tension.
