Vanitas with Oxy, after Peter Claesz, by Mary Worthington
Oil on 12" x 16" cotton paper, unframed, 2019
MEMENTO SACKLER is a painting series inspired by the work that artist Nan Goldin has been doing through P.A.I.N. (@sacklerpain) to raise awareness of the devastating effects of the opioid epidemic that the drug Oxycontin helped to create. The Sackler family, who led the company manufacturing Oxycontin, has made billions on a drug that has killed hundreds of thousands of people in the course of two decades. Inspired but Memento Mori paintings, reminders of mortality, we juxtaposed bottles of Oxycontin on newly rendered vanitas still lifes.
