Nancy Armitage

We all have emotional armor, that has been growing since the first time we have ever been hurt. We build up layers of armor to insulate our feelings so we cannot be hurt the same way again. It takes a lot of courage and trust to peel back those layers, revealing our array of scars. Having emotional armor can provide stability, courage and confidence to the “wearer” as well as the ability to hide one’s vulnerability.

Through this body of work I strive to communicate the process in which we construct our emotional defenses. We hide our feelings and experiences within our layers of armor that define us. For many, these are untold stories.
