Artist Robert Roach lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His one-of-a-kind, abstract monoprints are inspired by the landscape, climate and light of the American Southwest. He has been shown in a number of exhibitions and his work appears in more than 100 collections in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Also a painter, his prints often contain painterly effects in the layering and juxtaposition of color and form. He has studied with several well-known printmakers and painters.
“My work is mostly a reflection of mood, mystery, emotion and memory, often active and bold, sometimes quiet and contemplative. My intention is to use gesture, color, texture and contrast to uncover a new, hidden beauty in form and line. These monoprints attempt to capture the tension of various visual elements, often suggesting fragility and a tentative balance. The work is intended to appeal to the curious. I would prefer the viewer study and question rather than simply enjoy. The ultimate interpretation is left to the looking.”
