#TOAFtakeover Here a little group of my pill jars going in the show "Its Out Of My Hands- painting grey areas' I have a fridge full of vitamins and it strikes me as sort of control freaky the way we take vitamins and pills to manipulate our health and bodies. Somewhere between futile and empowered, taking pills is a good metaphor for the sentiment behind this work. Ive made about 50 of these so far and I want to exhibit them all together on shelves. Its an airdrying clay and is lovely and light and you can paint on them with anything. Some of these are spray painted, I have some gold leaf ones as well. #TOAFtakeover #takeovertuesday #TheOtherArtFair #ShannonJohnson #untileverything #itsoutofmyhands
