Biography

Winston Roeth paints monochrome or two-toned panels on supports that range from slate, dibond, and honeycomb, to MDF and raw cedar, often combining them to form grids or rows of panels in various different colors. Working in raw pigment and tempera medium, Roeth layers his paint into dense matte surfaces, sometimes painting the contour of a work in a contrasting color. He begins by sketching and organizing his ideas in “Desktop Drawings,” graphite and ink drawings on graph paper. “I use the drawing primarily as a compositional tool, especially when I’m organizing a grid, which presents so many variables within such a simple form,” he has said. “I can measure out a painting in front of my eyes using a desktop drawing.”
