The Medicine Cabinet
2020, oil on canvas, 24 x 36″.
This image depicts a common scene of a woman, visiting her medicine cabinet in the morning. The various bottles contain medicine all of the medicines needed to regulate her entire body. There is something to stabilize her blood pressure. Something to stabilize her pain. Something to stabilize her blood sugar. And, even something to stabilize her mood. Although she believes that she is quite alive, the skeletal figure underlies that she is actually slowly dying due to her reliance on pills.
