Bill Armstrong at ClampArt
A photographic project that has been underway for more than ten years—Bill Armstrongs' "Infinity" series—will be exhibted at ClampArt in New York City. The series of new images, dubbed "Renaissance," was created by the capture of found images with an out-of-focus lens. The setting of the lens is placed at infinity, hence the title of the larger project. Bill Armstrong uses master drawings from the Renaissance and presents them in vivid color. The human figures featured in Armstrong's images reflect the state of the human condition as they are locked in dramatic, sometimes ambiguous poses.
The exhibition runs until February 17, 2007. This is Armstrong's third exhibition at ClampArt. The photographer has been exhibiting all over the world for 25 years, and is represented in the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Musée de l'Eysée in Lausanne, and Centro Internazionale di Fotografia, among others. His images in "Renaissance" comprise the interest in the self and humanity that characterized much of the art and learning of the 15th century along with a focus on the ongoing spirit of discovery, fueled by a universal creative energy.
Bill Armstrong is one of the featured photographers in the January/February 2008 issue of CameraArts.
