Erin Armstrong | The Burden Of Broken Silence
March 7-21, 2018
340 Dundas Street W, Toronto

Opening Reception: Thursday, March 7, 6-8 pm, Artist in Attendance.


Juxtaposing the everyday with surrealistic imaginings, painter Erin Armstrong captures hidden emotions often lost in human experience. Her concern is not to recreate reality as it exists, but rather to evoke an atmosphere that transports the viewer into a world of interpretation. 

In The Burden of Broken Silence, Armstrong depicts figures representing how it feels to be alive in today’s world. The collection encourages the viewer to question and examine the metaphorical masks we wear, the environment we occupy, and our awareness of our surroundings.  

Armstrong's work is sold internationally and has been exhibited in Canada, the US, Australia, Sweden and the UK. In 2014, she was selected by Saatchi Art as their "One To Watch" and by Saatchi Art's chief curator, Rebecca Wilson, as one of "20 Emerging Artist in the World to Follow." Designlines Magazine named Armstrong one of Toronto's "Six New Art Stars" and blogTO counted her in their "Top 10 Most Talked About Painters In Toronto." In 2018, Armstrong completed an artist residency in Los Angeles at ESXLA.

The artist has recently collaborated on projects for The Drake Hotel, Nike, Kit + Ace, Saatchi Limited. She has upcoming exhibits in Toronto, Australia, Stockholm, Edinburgh, London, Oslo, Miami and NYC.
