About the artist

My work refers to Brazilian travels, specifically along the Amazon River Basin. Naturalistic forms resembling beehives, vertebrae, cocoons, anthills, plant forms and insects are spread across the surface of the work. My palette is often subdued beneath a layer of darkness, suggesting mystery. The work transcribes a memory of objects and impressions of what was seen and felt.

 

Brazil and the Amazon River Basin have been the subject and inspiration for my work for more than thirty years. Visiting the region now two to three times a year I find that the landscape has many moods. The Amazon River is an apt metaphor for the act of churning up remembered objects and sights, gathered while traveling along its rough course. In its flow, the river boils an object to the surface only to swallow it up again to resurface later. These impressions are a memory of the river bound on both sides by a high, dark jungle; foreboding and beautiful. If it takes you in, it takes you in whole.

"My work pushes the boundaries of what has been historically defined as a print.  I have been exploring the integration of traditional and digital printmaking processes in a three-dimensional format by layering intricate digital lasercuts with traditionally printed monotypes on translucent sheets of washi paper.  I am interested in how these layered sheets allow for an interaction of light and shadow as they occupy space.  Lace and craft doilies of family heritage serve as a vantage point for the paper abstractions.  These compositions become transformed into a deeper temporal and psychological space through the complex layering of the intricate patterns."

About the artist

"I make number and text based, color oriented abstract paintings and drawings.

The paintings are created by repeating and layering the words or numbers found in the title of the piece. I use my own handwriting, fragment each letter or number and assign colors to every unit. Repeated over and over, the words become purposefully illegible, serendipitous rhythms of lines and colors in transition. I am interested in the “flow” the marks make, rather than any hint at legibility."

I consider the Stroke Studies (2014 – present) to be joyful research and development. Although these paintings began as a possible means to add more “hand” to the grounds of my text-based paintings, they have developed into an ongoing inquiry and stand on their own as finished works.

About the artist
"My work is a contemporary statement layered in classical elements hidden in the unpredictability of mixed mediums. I look for detail and watch for change. I find movement that becomes suggestion, texture, and images that become another form. I love rainy days, dusk and tamarack bogs…stones and cracked walls overgrown with wildflowers…water habitats and all their varied moods." Maarja Roth

About the artist

The depiction of land has often been used as a means of celebrating or critiquing culture. The use of pastoral views, banal architecture and everyday trash problematize the traditional definitions of a natural landscape. Through the process of transforming and miniaturizing materials found in the land, objects, in their new context, are no longer discernible as natural or man-made. The juxtaposition of representational modes and materials create a hybrid space where the romanticized and actual intermingle. Contrasts between the flat, painted vistas and artifacts from the land expose the illusion of representation and subsequently confuse the pictorial space, calling into question the authenticity of the objects. The forms fracture the pictorial space, at times, inhabiting the frames, robbing them of their ability to define a single view and inviting a phenomenological exploration by the viewer.characteristic of identity.
