Ruth Root

Ruth Root (Galeria Marta Cervera) combines digitally printed fabric with painted plexiglass to create shaped paintings that quiver in space.  Martha Schwendener wrote for the NYTimes in 2015  
Conceptually they wander into the argument between what is “image” and what is “pattern,” a battle in which pattern — seen historically in European and American art as feminine and decorative — was treated as less rigorous and important.
