Laurel Roth is a self-taught sculptor who lives and works in Northern California. Before becoming an artist she worked as a park ranger and in natural resource conservation. These professional experiences have influenced her current work, which centers on the human manipulation of and intervention into the natural world, and the choices we must make everyday between our individual desires and the well being of the world at large. Through traditional techniques of carving, embroidery, crochet and collage, Roth transforms ordinary materials into fantastical creatures and surprising, often humorous, assemblages. Examining topics ranging from biodiversity and industrial agriculture to the pharmaceutical industry, fertility culture and domestic animal breeding, her work hovers between protection and neglect, beauty and decay, possibility and limitation.

Roth has shown widely both in the United States and abroad, including shows at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City and the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian, the 21C Museum, the Zabludowics Collection, the Progressive Collection, the Ripley’s Museum of Hollywood and the Museum of Art and Design in New York. She is represented by Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco, Schroeder Romero Gallery in New York City and Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago.
