Artist, Peter Root

With a quick glance, Peter Root's work evokes memories of large cities, almost anywhere. Repetitive "buildings", of all sizes, allow the viewer to visually meander through the artist's streets, never resting, always in movement.
Stacks of staples, broken up and densely stacked, are the sole material in this work, relating to the artist's themes of structure, scale and repetition
As in many of Mr. Root's works, Ephemicropolis is both fragile and impermanent- perhaps like many contemporary cities, the world over.
