HANDMADE: THE ART OF SUSAN ROTH
This major exhibition surveys more than forty years of work produced by the Canastota-based artist, ranging from her early stain paintings influenced by the Color Field painters to recent works in powder-coated steel.Roth's abstract,shaped canvases are composed of layers of color which often take on three-dimensional,sculptural forms. These innovative works are made possible through the use of acrylic products that Roth has had a hand in developing over the years in collaboration with Golden Artist Colors, a Central New York-based company that specializes in acrylic colors and mediums. Roth's restless experimentation has resulted in a body of work that pushes painting to the limits and has repeatedly opened new areas for exploration. Featuring more than thirty works from private and public collections, Handmade connects works across various periods in order to highlight the material and conceptual concerns that have remained constant throughout Roth's long career but which also continues to evolve.
