Since I began working on the 3D polychrome paintings, I realized that the entire world was 3D-form combined with surfaces of color/pattern. Nature, the built world, design, clothing—everything is 3D polychrome! - Richard Roth
Richard Roth, who is also a designer, is best known for his abstract geometric paintings that often depict subtle illusions. Roth's playful polychrome objects combine sculpture and painting where, true of the artist's wider practice, the process of making is a central element of their creation. His practice is enriched by his interest in product design, product packaging, fashion, custom cars, and architecture. Roth's paintings reference contemporary material culture by featuring characteristics of modernism. His practice experiments with color, shape, and form, and places an emphasis on process, material, and technique.
