medication canvases

Through experimentations made during my BA in fine art, I found that by adding acidic based substances and warm water to gelatine capsules it broke down the structure of the capsules into a paste, or a combination of a sculptural material and painting medium. This material then could be used to sculpt, dye and paint surfaces that I found perfectly illustrates the struggles of medication, there addictive qualities and the use of over prescription as a cure all for those who are struggling in various medical  issues.

below is a selection of canvas based outcomes from these experimentations
