"Seth Armstrong produces narrative paintings. Exactly what these narratives entail, however, is not definitive, but included is the drama, mystery, and humor that accentuate the theatrical and fictitious characteristics that he believes are apparent in everyday life.

The actions of the subjects and the circumstances of their environments are often vague, only hinting at the motives or story lines that are inherently taking place. Because of an interest in portraiture and a fascination with the use and manipulation of photographic elements, a heightened sense of reality is given to what otherwise might be considered awkward or outlandish.
