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.

Interviewed by Andrea Tarsia, Head of Exhibitions and Projects

Andrea Tarsia- You seem interested in exploring systems of belief?

Eva Rothschild- I'm interested in un-systems of belief, non-systems, in how people move their 'spiritual' desires between different objects and traditions.
thesnowshow.net - Eva Rothschild: Art with Symbolic Associations and Spiritual Power
Eva Rothschild is best known for her woven paper and Perspex sculptures. Her iconography consists of fantastic, often obscure, and occasionally threatening images that draw their inspiration from science fiction, horror stories, and legend. In her woven pieces, Rothschild patiently weaves together images that have been cut into thin strips of paper. These works often include computer drawn op-art patterns.
