Armstrong Collins Corner

John Armstrong & Paul Collins's current show Corner at General Hardware Contemporary consists mostly of their painted photographs.  The superimposed spaces created through photography and layers of paint are pleasantly intriguing.

Also showing are Armstrong and Collins's videos, one of which, Academy Tianjinfeatures a walking camera shot through a vacant art academy littered with abandoned student belongings and furniture.  Like their painted photographs, the video is superimposed by static slash lines painted on the wall.

Thank you, N, for another great show.
