For artist Liz Roache, color is optimism, a source of beauty, and a medium for bold connections. Her fine art prints celebrate Bauhaus teachings by exploring color interactions that provoke conversation and find unexpected resonances.
Inspired by Josef Albers, Roache studied and worked for many years with Ati Gropius Johansen, daughter of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, and was chosen as her successor. “Ati and I talked constantly about color and design, topics that endlessly fascinated both of us,” says the Boston-based designer. Those influences guide Roache’s creative approach to both commercial and residential spaces, her teachings to corporate design teams, and her work and instruction in prestigious institutions around the world. Dedicating her life to color and design thinking led Roache to The Museum of Modern Art, where she has taught and designed exclusive products, The deCordova Museum in Massachusetts, and international design house Pierre Frey, where she has designed fabric, wallpaper, and rug collections.
