Aaron Roth works with found images interrogating them painting, installation, sculpture and photography. The installations straddling the place between the readymade and assemblage based upon the detritus in contrast to the painting having a mimetic and ironic relationship to advertising mostly coming from screenshots from chalga: Bulgarian pop folk music videos . The works draw their inspirations from chalga, conspiracy theory and advertisements to luxury goods used to explore questions of desire, myths of nationalism and capital.  since 2020 he has been curating and organizing shows in off-spaces.
