Eva Rothschild was born in Dublin, in 1971. She lives and works in London.
She received a BA in Fine Art from the University of Ulster, Belfast (1990-93), and an MA in Fine Art from Goldsmith’s College, London (1997-99). In 2014 she was elected Royal Academician.
Predominantly sculptural, yet highly conceptual, Rothschild’s work is rendered in a varied range of materials including aluminium, jesmonite, leather, wood, tiles and paper. Her work references art movements of the 1960s and 1970s, and is also informed by the aesthetics of protest and spirituality. Rothschild is concerned with the physical experience of sculpture and our relationship with objects and ways of looking. She has a materials based studio practice but also works on major public and outdoor commissions.
