Medicine Woman

Anna-Marie Parthun's avatar Anna-Marie Parthun

'Medicine Woman' is made completely of failed prescriptions that were prescribed to the artist within a years time. Her hair is made up of a variety of anti depressants, vitamins, allergy medication and more. Her face/body is made of prescription bottles and the background consists of included warnings for the prescription drugs. Trying to figure out the diagnosis(') of the artist by reading the art before you might prove as a difficult task. The multitude of medications can be prescribed for hundreds of reasons that are separate from their main target symptom/condition. It shows that you cannot judge someone solely on their prescriptions, the 'doctors orders' or the drugs marketed through advertisement as a 'solve all, cure all' medication.
