Bill Armstrong at CLAMPART: Film Noir

Film Noir
Bill Armstrong
February 21 – April 6, 2013




From the CLAMPART press release for Film Noir:


ClampArt is pleased to announce Bill Armstrong’s fourth exhibition at the gallery. Film Noir is new work from the artist’s “Infinity” series, a vast ongoing project that he has been developing for more than fifteen years. Film Noir revisits the themes of the classic black-and-white films of the 1940s and 50s, but with the lush, saturated colors for which Armstrong is now well known. Solitary figures contemplating the unknown reference the ethical and philosophical dilemmas laid bare in those stories. Armstrong’s dark, mysterious images remain unresolved, however, hinting at the increased uncertainties of the contemporary viewpoint. Click to continue ….

We previously printed from his Infinity series for a 2010 exhibition at Hackelbury Fine Art in London entitled Renaissance. For more on that show click here.

Bill Armstrong: From the Infinity series: Renaissance #1005
40 x 48 optically enlarged c-print


Bill Armstrong’s Renaissance images are part of an extensive body of work called the Infinity Series and are aptly named after a crucial aspect of the creative process where he rephotographs found images with his focusing ring set at infinity.Armstrong’s appropriated material is subjected to a variety of physical manipulations – photocopying, cutting, painting, rephotographing and the extreme de-focusing that enables him to blend and distill hues – all of which contribute to transform the originals and give them new meaning in a new context.


LTI-Lightside produced six conventionally enlarged 40″ x 48″ c-prints for this exhibition.



Joni Sternbach
Kenise Barnes Fine Art
June 5 – July 34, 2010


Joni Sternbach: From Surfland: 08.08.13 #8 Surfer Gals
20 x 24 archival pigment print, scanned from unique collodion tintype


Joni Sternbach has covered a lot of ground with her project Surfland… from shooting up and down both coasts in the United States to exhibiting the photographs seemingly everywhere in between and as far away as Lishui, China. Along the way, the work has received widespread critical attention both online and in print. Surfland, the book, also won in the 2008 Photolucida Critical Mass Awards hard cover Monograph category. LTI / Lightside produced thirteen 20 x 24 and 8 x 10 archival pigment prints and one30 x 40 digital c-print for this exhibition
