"Carolyn: Grieving Muscles No. 2" by Emily Benson

"This book of paintings was a study that I did on arthritic hands. I was inspired by the phrase, 'grieving muscles" and I immediately thought of my grandmother and her story. She used to be an artist, but now is unable to do much artistically because due to severe arthritis in her hands. I chose to explore this through making a book of paintings, because I wanted something I made using my hands, and others could touch with their hands."
