OCEAN BEACH SERIES
Roth juxtaposes the relationship of architectural symmetry as it relates to nature and the open ocean horizon. He blends layers of paint and painted-cut papers, exploring the sensibility of abstraction, utilizing the colorful geometric elements of a Lifeguard house. Each Lifeguard house is different, identified through its varied architecture, color, and graphic markings. Each structure symbolizes and represents a safe haven from Mother Nature. Robert was highly inspired by David Hockey’s Palm Springs pool paintings from the 1960's as well as the simplicity and color of a Rothko painting.
