"Artists are collectors by nature and by necessity. We collect artifacts, vistas, animals, or people that serve as models or subject matter. From found objects to other art works, artists also collect for inspiration. The qualities of things teach lessons and nourish us. So many studios serve as private museums, chapels of ephemera and oddities to sustain the Muse."
Richard Roth is chairperson of the painting and printmaking department at Virginia Commonwealth University.

He has been a visiting artist at the Glasgow School of Art, and the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design at the University of Central England.
