An interest in relics led me to create this mixed-media artwork based on the full-scale replica of the Winans Steam Gun located in Elkridge, MD. This invention that once defended the Thomas Viaduct during the Civil War now sits decaying at the intersection of Route 1 and Old Washington Road. My purpose in highlighting this piece of history is to emphasize how readily we disregard material objects.
Material: Mixed Media - Acrylic paint, gesso, graphite and found objects.
