In this latest work, I explore the visceral remnants of the Civil War through a still life of an amputated arm, preserved in a museum jar, emblematic of the personal and collective trauma of warfare. I visited the Civil War Museum of Medicine in Frederick, Maryland and was stunned by their collection and the absolute brutality of conflict. The arm was severed due to gangrene; the soldier feared this disease more than the battlefield alone because of its profoundly painful and deadly result. I wanted to capture the solemn beauty of the preserved limb, reflecting on the memory and the stories etched into the bodies of those who fought. This painting is not just a historical examination but a commentary on loss, resilience, and the human spirit's capacity to overcome adversity.
