Mixed Media and resin cast, 2019.
This bio-pharmacological mandala is created with found and recycled pharmaceuticals. It is inspired by my lifelong participation in the Psychiatric Survivor movement, as well as by consciousness raising movements of the 1960s and 1970s. The beautiful aesthetic of the mandala is made uncanny upon closer inspection. A large "prescription" further illuminates what contemplations may come to mind. This work is intended to be a political critique of propaganda, the sociology of medicine, health as a theoretical concept, and 21st century consumer culture as a whole.
