Brett Armory

I’m drawn to Brett Armory’s work. They bring back memories I have from New York even though they’re based on photos he took around the Tenderloin district in San Francisco. It’s the darkness and grittiness.
When I think of San Francisco, I think of bright, colorful murals in the Mission district and the beautiful view from my mother-in-law’s house in Bernal Heights. This is not the San Francisco Armory is depicting. If you’ve ever been to the Tenderloin, Dave Chappelle is right when he said, “Ain’t nuthin’ tender ’bout that motherfucker. The opposite of tender.”
