William Root é stato artista in residenza alla Scuola Internazionale di Grafica di Venezia in diverse occasioni nel corso degli ultimi anni e la maggior parte del suo lavoro è stato incentrato sulla creazione di libri d’arte nati dalla collaborazione con il poeta Michael Lynch.
Da questo connubio sono nati due libri d’arte in edizione limitata dedicati a Venezia ed i suoi dintorni; “Il Segreto della Luce” e “Burano”.
Le immagini sono state stampate in collaborazione con Roberta Feoli, printshopmanager ed insegnante della Scuola. I volumi saranno in mostra durante l’esposizione: “Lunghezza d’onda” dal 2 al 5 novembre 2016 presso la SG Gallery.
Mercoledì 2 novembre a partire dalle 16.00 l’artista William Root, l’autore Michael Lynch e l’incisore Roberta Feoli saranno presenti per l’apertura della mostra.
