Both Gerritz and Roeth play with different combinations of color and line to explore their manifold effects on human perception. Roeth, for his part, arranges small monochromatic rectangular panels, painted in richly saturated hues, into grids. Each work has a different color scheme and scale—some are comprised of four panels, others 16—and the effects vary. I’ll Take You There (2014), is a towering combination of 16 panels in pinks, yellows, blues, and blacks of fluctuating intensity. The lighter pink and yellow panels at the core of the grid reveal the patterns inherent in their wooden substrates, and like energy fields, the lines of the wood grain emanate towards the outer rim of dark panels. The effect of exuberant color moving towards a shadowy edge is hypnotizing, like a sunset shapeshifting into a night sky. What’s more, as light hits the panels at different times of day, they become less matte and more luminous, like mood rings.
