This event has ended.

With her most recent paintings, Martha Armstrong continues her abstracted investigations of a Vermont woodlot, capturing it in robust shapes and vividly heightened colors. “A landscape so familiar,” writes the artist, “takes on resonance of something felt or experienced, stand-ins for something or someone.”

Reviewing the artist’s previous Bowery show, Roberta Smith described shapes that “…maintain a nearly sculptural independence, hovering slightly above the image, just beyond legibility…They wear their devotions on their sleeves – Cézanne, Fauvism, Cubism, Arthur Dove – but their bigness, blockiness and electric spontaneity are quite their own…” (The New York Times, 9/25/15)
