Larry Roots is primarily a painter with a preference for large-scale work. Surface and textural qualities have always been of primary importance. Collateral to the painting is Larry’s sculptural work. They have primarily been large-scale commissions but more recently include gallery works. Larry earned his B.A. in painting from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, where he was named Alumni of the Year for 2005 in the visual arts. A full-time artist, Larry is in his studio everyday. Consequently he has cataloged over one-thousand works. His work shows regionally and nationally and is included in corporate, public and private collections.
