Zachary Armstrong: NOAH
Sep 9 — Oct 21, 2017
Ever Gold [Projects] is pleased to present NOAH, an exhibition of new work by Zachary Armstrong. NOAH is part of an ongoing series of large scale paintings by Armstrong based on a childhood drawing by his brother. Much of Armstrong’s work involves reworking the imagery of childhood artwork, both his own and that of friends and family, taking an original drawing as a structure to develop and expand to its limits. The original drawing that is referenced in NOAH is a stick figure portrait of the artist created three days after his birth by his then four-year-old brother. Three years ago, Armstrong turned the image into a stamp, using this tool to create an allover pattern and overlapping the figure to the point of abstraction. For NOAH, this pattern covers large scale encaustic paintings, which are hung over a wallpaper of the same pattern.
