David Richard Contemporary is pleased to present an exhibition of new abstract paintings on small rectangular, wall-mounted, wooden boxes by Richard Roth. The simple, geometric compositions wrap around and cover each of the side surfaces, blurring the boundary between painting and object. Some of the paintings are quite optical and illusory—enhanced by the matte surfaces and three-dimensional shapes—while others are more reductive and minimal. Each composition seems like a fragment of a puzzle or scrapbook with modernist tendencies and hint of something familiar.
