    About The Work

    Multifaceted and constantly evolving, the work of Dieter Roth radically expanded the definitions of various forms, combining and transforming each process to new ends. Often incorporating contradictory materials into his pieces—chocolate, sausage casings, and dough among them—Roth was not concerned with the permanence of his works, but rather how they came to be. In this intaglio print, a series of overlapping patterns and grids creates a visually kinetic abstraction that is reminiscent of Op Art. Divided by the presence of shading on the right half, the piece plays on the tension between dark and light, two-dimensional and three-dimensional, movement and stillness.
