Zachary Armstrong Dinos
July 5 - July 17, 2014


Robert Blumenthal Gallery is pleased to present Dinos, an exhibition of new work by Zachary Armstrong. This is the artist’s debut solo show and will inaugurate the gallery's new East Hampton space at 47 Newtown Lane. On view will be Armstrong’s “Dinosaur Paintings”.

For this series, Armstrong creates large scale replications of the dinosaur patterning found on his childhood bed sheets. Maintaining the original color palette, the “dinos” are an assortment of primary colors; red, yellow, blue, green and grey. Infused with the occasional leaf or palm tree, the paintings contain a distinct whimsicality and exist within a realm of fantasy and youth. Despite the dinosaur pattern's genesis in mass-production, no two paintings are alike. Armstrong preserves the origins of the imagery while creating a uniqueness within the production of each painting and the ability to delight viewers with its childlike imagination.
