About this work
Also known as
"These prints were created over the period of a month. Each time I took my prescribed painkillers (morning, noon, evening and night) I would make a print, changing the emphasis from taking the pain away to an act of creativity. From tiny pills infinite constellations can be formed. 86,062 refers to the number of pills I took for my illness and pain relief from the age of 15 to 35. The book cover was designed to look like the label on a pill box."--Statement provided by artist.
