Ava Roth is a Toronto-based encaustic painter, embroiderer and mixed-media artist. Roth’s current work brings together techniques from the discrete worlds of fine art and crafts. Her series of sewn encaustic paintings, her collection of encaustic embroideries and her work with live bee hives all push the boundaries of what we imagine possible in each individual practice.
Roth uses natural and local materials whenever possible. Canadian beeswax, reclaimed Ontario barn wood, birch bark, linen, landscape photography and paper are hallmarks of her work. She is fundamentally guided and inspired by the natural materials she uses.
Ava Roth is represented by Loop Gallery, in Toronto, and Wall Space Gallery, in Ottawa. In addition to exhibiting in solo and group shows, Roth’s work has been featured in many on-line and print magazines, and she has been the recipient of several awards for her paintings. Her pieces have been acquired by private collectors throughout Canada and internationally.
