Tauba Auerbach (b. 1981) is a contemporary American artist known for her varied use of painting, printmaking, photography, and installation to explore structures of language and perception. In her Fold paintings, she shapes large pieces of canvas by pleating, folding, or rolling, and then covers their surface with a spray gun to emphasize the surfaces’ highlights and textures. Born in San Francisco, California, she graduated from Stanford University in 2003. The artist had her first solo exhibition in 2006 at Deitch Projects. She has also been featured in group exhibitions at the New Museum, The Museum of Modern Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
