Professor in the Department of Painting + Printmaking, Richard Roth began his career in the late 60′s when Minimalism and Conceptual Art predominated in the art world. His work from this time, “Untitled (Yellow Corner)” was recently acquired by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. The work nods to the essential modernist form while subjecting it to rotation, misalignment, and high-keyed color.
