Eva Rothschild was born in Dublin, Ireland. 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). Her work is predominantly sculptural, and she works across a range of materials including aluminium, jesmonite, leather, fabric and perspex. She has a materials-based studio practice but also works on major public and outdoor commissions. Her work references the art movements of the 1960s and 1970s, such as Minimalism and is also informed by the contemporary aesthetics of protest and spirituality. Rothschild is represented by Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London, 303 Gallery, New York, Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zürich/New York, The Modern Institute, Glasgow and Kaufmann Repetto, Milan. In 2014 she was elected Royal Academician.
