David Roth "Irreducible Motif #25"



Interference paint on tempered masonite, titled "Irreducible Motif #25," by David Roth, 2017. Roth (b. 1942) studied with Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan at the Chicago Institute of Design in the early 1960s. He was represented by New York City's Robert Elkon Gallery in the 1970s, and his works are in numerous museums, such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Albright Knox Museum, as well as in corporate and private collections. He has experimented with the optical qualities of color throughout his career--a Bauhaus project--and in Interference found a medium that permits radical shifts in color with changing incidence of light and viewer position. The present work shifts dramatically from violet to green (see photos). Signed lower right and on back.
