Artist and sculptor Eva Rothschild will be unveiling new work in a solo exhibition at London gallery, Modern Art, this month. Internationally renowned for her large-scale public commissions, her most notable works include Tate Britain’s Duveen Gallery Commission in 2010, and Empire – a Public Art Fund Commission in New York in 2011. Her solo show, Hot Touch, was the inaugural exhibition at The Hepworth Wakefield gallery when it opened in 2011, and she has since exhibited extensively at galleries worldwide.
Eva follows the legacy of modernist sculptural tradition, in the line of leading female artists such as Barbara Hepworth and Eva Hesse. She has developed a distinctive visual language – recognisable for her abstract and angular constructs and compositions.
Her work is concerned with the social and spatial qualities of sculpture; how certain qualities of corporeality might be invested with spiritual meaning, and the precise point at which narratives might arise out of formal arrangements.
This new exhibition at Modern Art on Vyner Street – from 22 March until 28 April 2018 – will emphasise the breadth of her practice, encompassing works in varying scales, materials and production techniques. Particularly striking will be a new, five metre-high sculpture, conceived inside the Vyner Street gallery space, very much on the scale of her abstract outdoor interventions. Until then, you can enjoy some examples of her most memorable works below.
