Richard Roth, a painting professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, began his career in the late 1960s when Minimalism and Conceptual Art predominated in the art world. Untitled (yellow corner)dates from that time and nods to the essential modernist form of the grid (Piet Mondrian, Ad Reinhardt, Sol LeWitt), while subjecting it to rotation, misalignment, and high-keyed color. In effect, Roth created a “maximalist” rather than minimalist painting—although one still within the bounds of hard-edged geometry.
— John B. Ravenal, Sydney and Frances Lewis Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts
