New York painter Mark Roth addresses the idea that, as climate impacts deliver us to a novel global frontier, the role of artist as inventor, custodian and presenter of story takes on a great charge. His work is focused on rewilding, ethology and Painting’s utility in the 21st Century.
Currently, his Augmented Reality installation, Missing the Megafauna, can be encountered at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Roth emerged from Chicago’s performance art scene, which launched a ten-year touring career in the 80s and 90s. He headlined at The Green Mill (Chi), Randolph Street Gallery (Chi), Club Lower Links (Chi), PS122 (NYC), The Marsh (SF) and The National Storytelling Festival in Jonesboro, Tennessee. A graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Roth’s recent solo painting exhibits in New York City include Superheated Reservoirs at The Phatory, Dormancy Quota Exceeded at Michael Mut Gallery and The Tornado Paintings at DD172.
