Belle Roth: explores human interconnection through her use of color, light, and architectural influences. Roth’s compositions are rooted in abstraction; deconstructed forms are unearthed and highlighted by both line and shape that coincide with shimmering gold, neutral color fields, and vibrant accent hues.
In Roth’s Memphis, Tennessee studio, process and media are fortified by 20th-century abstract expressionist vernacular, and impressions from her Philippines upbringing, travels, and interactions with diverse cultures. Roth varies structures of golden noble metals and contrasting black that symbolize memories of the class divide she witnessed. Simultaneously, her work glistens with hopeful societal transformation. Her earth-toned color palette is reminiscent of sources from which building materials are mined and on which home and hearth stand.
Layers of texturized acrylic, spray paint, and gold leaf are vigorously applied using different techniques, promoting participation in joyous unexplored opportunities. Roth measures powerful narratives of family, community, equality, overcoming adversity, and collective capabilities with hopes of sharing her perspective in the pursuit of a better world.
“..IT DOESEN’T MATTER WHERE YOU ARE BUT…WHAT YOU DO WHERE YOU ARE..”
My mind sees the world through various dimensions, depths, colors, and shapes. What is most exciting when creating my abstracted compositions is how through the use of a simple line, circle, or other forms, while accompanied by the right stroke of my brush, proposes a promise of unlimited possibilities and meaning in an unexplained way.
My work is inspired by architecture; simple lines that do not conform to standard design or configuration. My compositions are intentionally deconstructed to obtain a multifaceted characteristic; each exploring memories from my childhood, my travels, and my exposure to the wonderful cultures of this world.
I create my style of work by infusing acrylic paint with mixed-media techniques, all with consideration of the environment that surrounds me. I gained an appreciation for the arts while growing up in Southeast Asia. After experiencing art, music, and travel at a young age, I unveil my life experiences through my interpretation of colors, textures, and details.
My greatest passion is combining multiple hues, creating the illusion of depth, and constructing texture which is the essence of my style and therefore, the foundation of what I create.
