Zachary Armstrong American, b. 1984



Zachary Armstrong (b.1984) lives and works in Dayton, Ohio. He works in painting, but also in painted sculpture and other media. Through his works, Armstrong explores a childhood creative Elysium, using children’s drawings, both of his own making, and of his friends as the base for his large-scale encaustic works. Armstrong’s choice of encaustic as the dominant medium also owes a debt to his subject-matter, choosing the imprecise, fuzzy impression of lines fused via layers of wax, melted together over the hard outlines of oil or acrylic paint.
