Michael Armstrong is a visual artist working in the field of painting and drawing. His practice portrays the amalgamation of the internal and external experience of individuals.
The paintings express the experience of involuntary remembering. Where small moments of clarity act as clues piecing together a greater narrative. Falling into a daydream, where small symbolic bells of tender sentiment resound from some unknown time, location and individual.
