With his fourth exhibit with the gallery, Bill Armstrong presents “Film Noir.” The opening reception for “Film Noir” will be Thursday, February 21, 2013, 6–8pm at ClampArt in New York City, the exhibit will be on view until April 6th.
“Film Noir” is new work from the artist’s “Infinity” series, a vast ongoing project that he has been developing for more than 15 years. “Film Noir” revisits the themes of the classic black-and-white films of the 1940s and ’50s, but with the lush, saturated colors for which Armstrong is now well known. Solitary figures contemplating the unknown reference the ethical and philosophical dilemmas laid bare in those stories. Armstrong’s dark, mysterious images remain unresolved, however, hinting at the increased uncertainties of the contemporary viewpoint.
