Tauba Auerbach: 50/50
In her drawings, paintings and artist's books, San Francisco-based Tauba Auerbach investigates the relationship between spoken and written language, focusing especially on those points where the familiar structure begins to break down or slip. She rigorously yet playfully pushes at the boundaries of our comprehension by rearranging and abstracting words and letters. With a razor sharp style that reveals her training as a professional sign painter, Auerbach makes works on panel and paper that are a refreshing spin on the traditions of Conceptual art and Concrete poetry. This volume features her 50/50 series of large-scale drawings, all of which consist of halftone patterns that express the same shade of gray.
Auerbach, who was born in 1981, graduated from Stanford University. Her work has been exhibited internationally and she is included in Painting Factory, an exhibition at MOCA 2012.
