Biography

Robert Roth is an Ohio-based artist who grew up in the historic seaside village of Cold Spring Harbor, New York. A graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Robert studied painting under Thomas Sgouros. He also had the opportunity to study with master, Claes Oldenburg. Robert approaches his work by inventing from nature, “ I like to be spontaneous, by abstracting the forms I try to create a sense of mood and atmosphere.” He combines a variety of textures and shapes blended with quick brush strokes to achieve a sense of lost and found. Throughout his travels, he is always recording from life. Roth is also particularly inspired by the likes of Degas, Vuillard, Diebenkorn, and Picasso. His paintings are held in public and private collections including The Ritz Carlton, American Express, The New Yorker, Columbia University and Northeastern University. Robert has received numerous honors, including a Silver Medal from The Cleveland Museum of Art and two medals from The Heckscher Museum in New York. Robert has exhibited his work in New York City, East Hampton, Santa Fe, Washington DC and Martha’s Vineyard.
