The Artist: Tauba Auerbach


I first discovered New York-based artist Tauba Auerbach's work through a profile in The Gentlewoman. At the time I was studying fine arts and working on a series of paintings based on reflections, refraction of light and plays on shadow and contrast. Tauba's work, those incredible paintings with three dimensional appearance, were a mystery to me - they almost need to be seen to be believed, such is the power behind her artistic presence. The Gentlewoman describe her niche in the field sitting between "science, craft, maths and aesthetics," a unique combination cementing her as a collectable artist for years to come.
