After having graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Arts in Paris, Micha Tauber subsequently studied at the Atelier National d’Art Textile.
Since 1993, the artist has exhibited at many contemporary art shows and European galleries in Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, London, Barcelona and Frankfurt.
If there is one term that best defines the artist’s approach, it is the word timeless, which opens onto an imaginary world based on a universe of dreams, a world in which all is sensuality, magic, fairy tales… Micha Tauber’s work beckons us with escapism, journeys into the unconscious or our memory, journeys through distant or imaginary civilizations.
We discover reliefs, collages, inclusions which cut into matter. We ponder those rock fragments, a fulcrum which installs abstract shapes and volumes that will evolve toward a united whole.
Micha Tauber’s painting then becomes a more poetic reality… We try to search back into our memories to attempt to find ethnic origins, an influence… in vain. The captivating mystery in her works remains intact.
