0193 Untitled (Fold)-Tauba-Auerbach-large
Untitled (Fold) 2010

TAUBA AUERBACH (American, b. 1981) manipulates large pieces of raw canvas into various configurations through folding or rolling. She then lays the canvas out flat and applies pigment to its surface with an industrial spray gun from different angles to create surface effects reminiscent of colour changeante fabrics or white chalk highlights. Auerbach has been called a semiotician and a conceptual artist, but those terms, to a certain extent, divert attention away from non-discursive, visual/perceptual matters, such as the role played by color in the experience of depth the creation of illusionistic surfaces.
