This image was inspired by the song 'Medicine,' by band Daughter, as well as my own friendship with an addict many years ago.
The dead wildflowers that cover her head represent potential—even when it seems like they have dried up, they are full of tiny seeds, ready to start again. Addiction is the fire that destroys that potential—difficult to contain, passionate in itself. The water represents choice—to put out the fire and the depths of the struggle to do so. The little details—the moths, leaves and dragonfly, represent transformation, a new season and the ability to rise above.
'Medicine' Lyrics (reordered):
You've got a warm heart
You've got a beautiful brain, but it's disintegrating
From all the medicine
You could still be
What you want to
Pick it up, pick it all up
And start again
You've got a second chance
‘Self Medication,’ 2021
