Nelson W Armour: The Identity Project is on display August 30- September 21

In leaving his house of 35 years, Armour tried detaching himself from his T-shirts, hats, and other apparel, but was hampered by the memories. They contained too many of the stories and phases of his life. In these self-portraits, Armour is portrayed as an “everyman,” an archetype of people everywhere. The clothes we wear identify ourselves. The tee goes further; it states and projects, either whimsically or seriously. Why has the T-shirt and hat become so universal? Why do we directly advertise our egos and embrace our idols and causes? What are we trying to say?
