The catalogue for an exhibition of work by Bill Armstrong, held at Clamp Art, NYC, September 8 - October 22, 2005. "The mysterious and powerful images in this body of work capture fleeting 'visitations' from the spirit world--visions as they might appear in dreams or heightened states of wakefulness. The photographs are made using Armstrong's unique process of re-working found images and photographing them out of focus. In this case, the original source materials are reproductions of Roman sculpture. For Armstrong, the ghosts of ancient Rome represent particularly appropriate messengers of our time, as we contemplate the fate of our own empire." Photographs and comments by Armstrong; essay by A.D. Coleman. Staple-bound thin card wraps; unpaginated [44 pages]; 16 full-page color plates; 8.5 x 11 inches.
