The work of David Armstrong Six draws upon a wide-range of references and materials, resulting in an equally diverse yet decisive practice within the ambit of sculpture, drawings and video. Whether it be the use of fluorescent light fixtures to articulate a minimalist form, letting liquids leak from a false ceiling onto a gallery floor, or the unruly and humorously vitriolic performance of an original rap song, one may see in his practice a strategy for infecting culture through the tenuous nature of its prototypes.

Originally from Toronto, David Armstrong Six has been living and working in Montreal since 2006. His work has been exhibited widely throughout Canada, the USA, Europe, and New Zealand including shows at the Power Plant in Toronto, the MACM in Montreal and White Columns in New York. Recently his exhibition The Dry Salvages was on view at the Parisian Laundry in Montreal g and he is currently working on an exhibition of new work for a show at 381 Red Bull Projects.
