Kimberlee Joy Roth

"Throughout history, rhythmic arrangements of ornamental embellishments have enriched the surfaces of architecture, furniture and clothing, as well as metal, glass and ceramic fine art objects. The Art Nouveau period’s use of strong curvilinear and varied thickness of line created complex and sophisticated designs that appeared deceptively simple. This aesthetic along with the spirals, ogival arches and trefoils of Islamic and Moorish architecture and the lotus petals, clouds and waves of Korean and Chinese ceramics are the primary influences on my work. This current work, arrangements of stacked tessellated tile patterns, floral forms with and without background tiles, and a new work which combines silk screening on panel with ceramic forms, continues my exploration, and furthers my development and understanding, of more complex color and form relationships."
