Tauba Auerbach, an artist with a background in graphic design & sign painting, has created an impressive and varied body of work in the last years, spanning from paintings, photographs and sculptures through jewelry design to music performances with self-invented instrument. Her elegant compositions look simple, but are often inspired by complex systems of information, with an aim to deconstruct the habitual ways visual and perceptual information is conveyed. Good examples are her “Fold” pieces – acrylic paintings on canvas that simulate folds of the fabric, and exist in “a liminal state between two or three dimensions.

Auerbach has  exhibited with the LA-based New Image Art gallery, passing through Deitch Projects & finally landing @ Paula Cooper.
