Alicia Rothman's unique style of painting employs a varied use of original printmaking techniques, including silkscreen, stencils, resists, relief, and intaglio, combined with painting in oil on panel. She utilizes her own handmade templates, digital pattern-making, and resist techniques to create the patterns that enliven her work. She draws on the history of Western art for her inspiration, with influences ranging from ancient wall paintings and Byzantine, medieval, and renaissance art to twentieth-century fabric designs.
