Biography

Zachary Armstrong (b. 1984) lives and works in Dayton, Ohio. He works in painting, but also in painted sculpture and other media. The point of departure of Armstrong’s art is his own world: his childhood, his family, the American province, folk art, natural history books he encounters. Armstrong’s works seem to contain a coded message about the person that created them, often referring to personal aspects of the artist’s life. Often a motif is repeated and extended throughout several paintings and series. However, with secret references to his personal universe, his works also evoke some larger context, such as the idea of American countryside, folk art, and the grand tradition of American and European modernism. Armstrong’s paintings combine geometrical structures and expressive figuration, all perfectly rendered in the texture-full encaustic technique, which give the works a haptic quality.
