Eva Rothschild - Our Life, Our Sweetness and Our Hope

Modern Art is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Eva Rothschild at its Bury Street gallery. This is Rothschild’s sixth solo exhibition with Modern Art.

Eva Rothschild’s sculptures are underpinned both by the legacy of modernist sculpture – notably the work of Hepworth, Brancusi, and Hesse — and the enduring forms of classical architecture. Typically using materials such as Jesmonite, Perspex, steel, polystyrene and ceramic, Rothschild’s work attends to relationships between objects and bodies, and to creating conversation between individual sculptures.

The title of Rothschild’s exhibition for Modern Art, ​‘Our Life, Our Sweetness and Our Hope’, conveys the idea of solace, reflecting the pull of her focus inwards over the past two years following her large scale installation in Venice.

The central three new sculptures of Rothschild’s show, Sphinx, Madonna and Empath, respectively, are cast in Jesmonite, which belies their unexpectedly soft, pensive nature. Installed on Bury Street’s ground floor, they have been created with the domesticity of the space in mind, which they delineate with an indeterminate, shimmering quality, in contrast to her signature hard-edge black forms that sharply determine the space around them.
