ALEXANDER FREDERICK ROTH
ARTIST, ACTIVIST, HE, EARTHLING
I would like to acknowledge that I live in the unceded land of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, and the Métis Nation (Region 3). I call Mohkinstsis my home but I have also spent a significant amount of my life in Vienna, the birthplace of my mother.
I have seven e-books published, they are named "This is not a Masterpiece", "This is not a Masterpiece II", "Microfiction Collection That Ended Up Frightening Me", "More Microfiction", "Poems to Mimi", "Amy", and a German book of poetry just titled "Poesie". All seven are available on Wattpad. "This is not a Masterpiece II", "More Microfiction", "Poems to Mimi", and my German book of poetry are ongoing and I will be adding to them until I no longer can, "Amy" is a fictionalized semi-autobiographical novel I am working on, I don't know if and when I will finish it. I also wrote a script for a short graphic novel called "Nodes" that I handed to my sister, Nicole Elizabeth Roth, that she will be illustrating. Furthermore, I have an ongoing photography journal project that I plan on ending when I die and I have a work called "Photoshop Monday", both are on DeviantArt. I also have a blog with thoughts and happenings. Have an extremely tiny video-game published too, it's called "On My Way To Berlin", it may become a full sized video-game in the future. Started a short child-friendly book on Tapas. I might do instrumental music in the future, for now its my silly track on bandcamp, don't take it too seriously.
I was born in Jasper in 1982 and was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2002. I am trying to create a human portrait of people suffering from schizophrenia with my art to disrupt our current and past pop-culture representation and more.
