Prosthetic art innovator to display at WIA exhibition
None of their relationships to war injuries are simple. Thus, while the artwork can be hopeful, it often disturbs. There is patriotism, but there also is disillusionment. Collectively, it is an acknowledgement that there is real suffering among those with severe war injuries. The exhibition also highlights the need for continued research to improve the ability of Wounded Warriors to reach their full potential and, hopefully, return to service.
All of the artists in Wounded in Action: An Art Exhibition of Orthopaedic Advancements have explored, both literally and figuratively, their feelings toward the loss of limbs and other musculoskeletal wounds - the majority of which are the result of war. The artists include military personnel who live with orthopaedic injuries and family members who helped them through their recovery process. Orthopaedic surgeons who treat wounded military and civilians and whose lives have been affected by war and their own experience with such injuries are also artists in this exhibition.
