"Armstrong succeeds because she carefully balances the universal and the personal and embraces the beauty, the grandeur, the glossy appeal, the ominous vacancy, the banal horrors and the self-inflicted contradictions of American lfe. Her paintings, executed in acrylics and bomb fuse and that thick gleaming coat of resin, seem like impeccably preserved snapshots of a long journey through a strange but familiar land."—Ferdinand Protzman, critic
