AboutFinding inspiration in often esoteric forms, Rothschild investigates concepts of form and materiality in sculptural works that use leather, wood, Perspex and, occasionally, surprising objects such as incense sticks and used tyres. Such materials often appear to transcend their physical limitations hovering between representation, symbolism and actual form. By deliberately destabilising physical and visual characteristics in her work, Rothschild not only
questions the aesthetics of art, in particular minimalism, but also those of belief in social, liberation and spiritual movements. For her South London Gallery exhibition Rothschild is making new works especially for the space.
