What about internal conflict in art?
When it comes to representational art, art is by its very nature a document of the time, place, and culture in which it was created. For those artists who have lived through and engaged with conflict, their work offers one way of passing on the experiences of those things we can’t all live through. Some artists have chosen to document conflict while it rages, while many have found it impossible to do so without a degree of commentary embedded in their work. Still others have embraced the spirit of conflict in their own work to speak to issues with particular poignancy.
