Ruth Root

 20 Jay Street, Suite 720

 

Work in progress on large scale plexiglass and fabric paintings. Ruth Root’s paintings are two-fold, encompassing both a designed and digitally printed fabric and a painted, shaped Plexiglas element. In some works, the painted elements mirror Root’s fabrics. However, these fabrics maintain their own distinct logic, allowing for a contrast between digital repetition and the handmade repetition of paint, whether it is spray, airbrush, or enamel. Utilizing the conventional materials of painting, soft fabric, hard supports, screws, and brushstrokes, Root interchanges their understood functions, creating new forms.
