At first the 3D paintings of Richard Roth might be mistaken for decorated utility boxes or other everyday eyesores made prettier with paint. After all, it isn't uncommon for people to mask certain hardware necessities in an artistic way. Yet these 3D paintings are much more than that. Instead, they pop out of the wall in order to give added dimension to more traditional artworks.

Inspired by the minimalist direction of Mondrian and Malevich, Roth's 3D paintings are full of bold colors, abstract patterns and geometric forms. By way of its three dimensional qualities, Roth has been able to continue the painting in surprising ways around the sides to convey a playful sense of humor and visuals.
