Monster II 2014
Encaustic, oil, enamel on canvas
72.5 x 60.5 inches (184 x 154 cm)
Zachary Armstrong's paintings are relics of his childhood. Faithful reproductions of monsters and self-portraits drawn in his youth, Armstrong's work is a meticulous study of childlike inhibition. In Monster II, the mammoth recreation of the artist’s own boyhood fantasy is memorialized with inclusion of Armstrong’s original signature from 1991. Influenced by Martin Kippenberger and Albert Oehlen, Armstrong's works also evidence the DIY aesthetic of his Midwest studio setting in Dayton, Ohio.
Armstrong will open his first Los Angeles solo show at Night Gallery in April and will be exhibited at the Depart Foundation in Rome in May of 2015.
