SPIRIT: From the Infinity Series
“A world just beyond our grasp, where place may be suggested, but is never defined, and where the identity of the amorphous figures remains in question. It is a world that might exist in memory, in dreams, or, perhaps, in a parallel universe yet unvisited.” — Bill Armstrong
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Bill Armstrong’s Infinity series transforms re-photographed and appropriated images to create ephemeral, abstracted and de-materialized color fields and strongly evocative iconic figures. Working with source material as diverse as African masks, Roman busts, statuary and other representations, Armstrong’s finished figurative and portrait images are powerfully suggestive of an unseen presence.
Spirit presents selections from five of the series that make up Bill Armstrong’s Infinity series. Working with his unique process of re-photographing appropriated images and subjecting them to a series of manipulations; Armstrong exploits the integrating capacities of camera blur to merge image details, edges and colors to create seamless color fields and mysterious, other-worldy figures.
