Paul Behnke photoblogs works by painter Robert Armstrong from the 2007 exhibition Afterimages at Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin.

The press release notes that Armstrong's works "pay attention to apparently inconsequential aspects of images seized from an assortment of historical and contemporary sources. Often the focus is on fragments cropped out of historically significant, richly detailed and symbolically loaded scenes – we are variously granted glimpses of Dürer, Bocklin, Holbein, Poussin and more."
