Ruth Root‘s large-scale geometric panels draw from the lineage of non-objective painting, using bold industrial colors and aesthetically ordered geometries that invoke cityscapes, product design, and 1960s technographics. Root’s playfully orchestrated compositions engage with the fundamental principles of formalism while simultaneously interacting with contemporary modes of interpretation.
