peter root: potato landscape

‘wasteland’ by peter root

london based artist peter root creates expansive sculptural landscapes using a variety of material including potatoes. his sculpture ‘wasteland’ is a small-scale landscape built using only potatoes. root explains ‘potatoes are good for building free standing structures as the starchy moisture acts as a type of glue helping to stick the units together.’ like root’s other work he prefers building piece using pure structures, without glue or any other type of adhesive. as the landscape dries, the pieces of potato harden and change colour and another dimensions to the piece. root also created another food related landscape using honey and almond scented soap bar.
