London: Art

After walking back from the British Museum (looking for dinner down a side street) I did a double take when I saw these oversized medicines*! It was Damien Hirst’s “Schizophrenogenesis” exhibition. “Sculptures of medicine bottles, pharmaceutical boxes, ampoules, syringes, a scalpel, and drug packaging that all play with concepts of scale – the tallest measuring nearly one and a half metres.” The proportions of these things makes you feel like a kid all over again, or maybe that’s just me. Haha. Those who know me will probably remember my amusement with miniatures and gigantics… so eye catching, they basically stop me in my tracks.




For a closer look at the individual pieces, check out the gallery website:

London being what it is, makes it possible to turn the corner onto something unexpected everyday. Installations, graffiti art, and architecture had me looking in all directions, mostly taking pictures like a crazy Japanese tourist [that I admittedly am].

These pieces also caught my eye because I’ve been planning to do my own mixed media artwork with real pills for a few years now. Collecting and hoarding all the colorful little gems so that I can cover a huge canvas with them… probably too reminiscent of gum-ball art or m&m world, but wayyyyyyyy better. Maybe Andy Warhol should’ve “painted” Marilyn in pills and actually said something. Either way I have other drugs {not pictured} which I am still formulating pictorial uses for… hehe. As of this moment, they will sit pretty on my desk until I get my next idea.


Name that drug!

*Like I said, I am overly amused (obsessed) with miniature and giant reproductions of things…
