Armour’s work has been shown in Chicago, nationally and internationally, and has appeared in numerous publications. LENSCRATCH featured Surface Tension in June 2015. This series is collaboration with Ted Glasoe and forms the basis of our book, Surface Tension: Beauty and Fragility on Lake Michigan, an exhibition proposal. This work was exhibited at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the Evanston Art Center, artNXTlevel, and the Saugatuck Center for the Arts.

 

Another series, At Work/At Home, En el Trabajo/En Casa, are portraits of landscape workers in Chicago’s north shore suburbs inspired by Milton Rogovin’s paired portraits of workers on the job and at home.  The Identity Project, a solo show exploring personal identity, life transitions, and memory through self-portraits, was hosted by Firecat Projects in Chicago.

 

Armour was a founding Member of Artists for Action Chicago, artists that stand for progressive values. They have photographed close to 40 rallies and marches in the past years. As a CPS Lives artist (a non-profit arts organization that pairs Chicago artists with Chicago public schools), Armour spent a year in a Chicago school photographing a 5th grade teacher. A recent solo exhibit, 28 days, traces Armour’s journey through radiation for prostate cancer, bringing into focus issues and emotions of longevity, trauma, malignancy, self, love, loss, family, and the future.
