Seth Armstrong 'View of Budapest' - oil on wood panel - showing as part of 'Well There You Are' in our project room this August

ALSO ON VIEW IN OUR PROJECT ROOM:
Artist Seth Armstrong, on view in our project room, creates narrative paintings. Exactly what these narratives are, however, he probably could not tell you. Whether the subject matter is based on found reference or from the imagination, an ambiguous storyline is always present. Even in a straightforward portrait, the circumstances that surround the subject(s) and the instance of the portrait are deeply considered. With an uncertain plot, the stories behind the paintings can be limitless. Sure, the artist has his theories, but these do not take precedence over those of the casual viewer.

Since the paintings themselves are approached individually, the relationship between one piece and another is often disjointed. As a result, a common thread among a body of work is realized (if at all) only after they are completed and viewed as a whole.
