This Saturday marks the return of Seth Armstrong to Thinkspace Gallery with "The Air is Thick", an exhibition of new works by the San Francisco based artist that self-consciously capture a sense of looking, arresting moments with cinematic detail and voyeuristic curiosity. In "The Air is Thick", Armstrong continues to explore themes that have consistently fascinated his output: the intrigue of illicit looking, and the fine line between intimacy and trespass. Just as cinema manages to satisfy our innate love of voyeuristic access, so too do the paintings offer us views onto private lives that both frustrate and satisfy. The suggestion of constant narrative pervades even the stillest and least active views, as Armstrong reminds us of the secret recesses behind all closed doors and all quiet faces.
