tauba auerbach manipulates large pieces of raw canvas into various configurations through folding or rolling. she then lays the canvas out flat and paints its surface with an industrial spray gun aimed at different angles to achieve a trompe l’oeil effect… examine the works’ surfaces closely and you find that they are perfectly flat, the apparent deformations skillfully spray-painted on.

i can only imagine what these look like in real life, but they are big – some over 2.5 metres high

i also really love her typographic pieces (marvel at the anagrams).
