Ava Roth is a Toronto-based painter, embroiderer and mixed-media artist.
Roth’s current collection of encaustic sewings brings together the two seemingly irreconcilable mediums of encaustic painting and embroidery. These encaustic embroideries explore the tensions between permanent and temporary, solid and delicate, transparent and opaque.
Roth uses natural and local materials whenever possible. Canadian beeswax, reclaimed Ontario barn wood, leather, linen and paper are hallmarks of her work.
Ava Roth is represented by Loop Gallery, in Toronto, where she has had numerous solo and group exhibitions. Her work has been exhibited at other galleries, including C1 Gallery ad AWOL, and has been featured in many on-line and print magazines, including Design Sponge. Her pieces have been acquired by numerous private collectors throughout Canada and the United States.
