Matthew Armstrong is a dynamic young painter who won the Glover Prize for landscape in 2009 and since then has strengthened his grasp and pursuit of movement and atmosphere within the landscape even further. This new exhibition raises the bar on a genre of industrial short views - the heightened effect of car speed, movement suggesting something just happened, light hitting an industrial container, flashes of colour, the sharp velvet of shadow fields. Here the everyday becomes unique like a modern and poignant haiku. Armstrong's superbly executed paintings are balanced and poised with an edgy and taut drama.
