A Midsummer Night's Gallery Guide

The painter Mary Armstrong creates ethereal landscapes that shift between the ground, water and air, exploring the symbiotic relationship between the earth and it’s atmosphere, evoking a sense of both serenity and turmoil. Her abstract interpretations of a landscapes are informed by 19th century painting approaches, yet her method of scraping through luscious wax and oils on panel in order to reveal hyped-up colors from underneath lend her work a decidedly contemporary resonance.
