Artist Statement

Root’s positioning of shapes on canvas play with arrangements by balancing or even stacking, his compositions alluding to ideas and sensibilities beyond the limits of formal abstraction. Merging enigmatic and inventively unexpected elements of representation, Root’s thoughtful arrangements suggest the liminal space between memory and reality.
