Primary Care

This original print combines my obsession with prime numbers with the creative possibilities of my current supplementary medication which supports my radio and chemo therapy for an agressive brain tumour.

Having made a full investigation and assessement of all available complementary approaches, I concocted a huge cocktail of pills and tablets which I take daily.

The pills are used as iconic substitutes for the prime factors 2,3,5,7,11,13,17,19,23,29,31 and 37. The 6x6 grid sequentially displays all the values from 2 to 37. All the non-prime numbers in this sequence are depicted as a composite of pills representing their prime factors.

So, an exotic array of colours and shapes with a personal story, a lot of visual potential and a bit of humour.
