Gary Armstrong: Originality, fueled by imagination is an essential aspect of my creative work. I feel that art must speak of its age and time. My art does this through the repetition of layered forms, formative color interaction, circular shapes, technical accuracy, and the illusion of synthetic structures. Form, space and color regularly occupy my thought. My process is fabrication, where I economically build closed and open high and low relief forms. The material I work with is wood, acrylic or acrylic latex paint and a sundry of other materials like handmade paper, metal, catkins and other accessible found materials . My work is Intuitive, introspective and to the best of my ability deliberate.

Gary Armstrong: Originality, fueled by imagination is an essential aspect of my creative work. I feel that art must speak of its age and time. My art does this through the repetition of layered forms, formative color interaction, circular shapes, technical accuracy, and the illusion of synthetic structures. Form, space and color regularly occupy my thought. My process is fabrication, where I economically build closed and open high and low relief forms. The material I work with is wood, acrylic or acrylic latex paint and a sundry of other materials like handmade paper, metal, catkins and other accessible found materials . My work is Intuitive, introspective and to the best of my ability deliberate.
