Eva Rothschild has earned a reputation as one of the UK's leading sculptors. Her compelling geometric and irregular constructions employ a diverse range of materials such as metal, glass, leather, Perspex and mosaic.

Rothschild's work explores forms in space and creates interactions between the situation of the work and its form which are completed by the body's interaction with it. What may at first appear as formal simplicity and harmony eventually reveals itself as highly complex and constructed.

Her vast outdoor sculpture, Empire, 2011, is permanently installed in the grounds of Suvikunta at the Zabludowicz Collection, Sarvisalo.

Highlights of her extensive exhibition history include solo exhibitions at The Hepworth Wakefield, 2011; Cold Corners, Tate Britain Duveens Commission, Tate Britain, London, 2009; South London
Gallery, London, 2007; Kunsthalle Zurich, 2004; and Un-Monumental: Falling to Pieces in the 21st Century, The New Museum, New York (group show, 2007). Her work is included in the collections of Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; and Tate, London.
