No words describe the wanderlust of Armsrock, who is continually en route these days back and forth across the pond. In search of the secrets to the human condition and social geopolitical causation, his drawings depict the everyman and everywoman on the street; venturing into complex feelings of isolation, fear, hope, community. As his insight grows, he eagerly shares it with the viewer; always treating the subjects, the people, with dignity.
After seeing them in person, we’re excited to see where he’s going to go with his 3-D diarama boxes – clearly they are studies for bigger things…. large scale installations? interactive virtual tours? Set design? Wherever Armsrock goes exploring, we hope to be there.
This spring Armsrock’s been creating and showing in San Francisco’s Fifty 24SF Gallery with D*Face ; at the moment right here in Brooklyn as part of Ad Hoc’s Poets of Paste show, and concurrently he’s paired with Chris Stain and Poncho at BlackRat Gallery in London.
