Pasatiempo - - IN THE WINGS - Richard Roth: Drama Queen

David Richard Gallery, 1570-A1 Pacheco St., 505-983-9555 Us­ing a re­duc­tive pal­ette, Richard Roth cre­ates art­works with bold, graphic de­signs in which he ex­plores per­cep­tion, op­tics, and the ten­sion be­tween two- and three-di­men­sional forms. His paint­ings are small-sized com­po­si­tions ren­dered on squat rec­tan­gu­lar pan­els, four inches thick and a foot in height. “In spite of their diminu­tive stature and stark vo­cab­u­lary, my paint­ings in­volve my in­ter­est in play, the quo­tid­ian, and the ‘reti­nal,’ ” he wrote in a state­ment. His solo ex­hi­bi­tion, Shocks and Struts, is cur­rently on view through June 3.
