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.
