Since November 27, 2018 I had been making a painting of my birth control pill every single day before I take it. I paint these pills from life, the change in shadow mirrors the lighting of the place and time the pills are painted. From green to pink, the fluctuating background follows my menstrual cycle the act and image reflect the following, my power to choose, daily self-reflection and the twenty eight day cycle. I continue to feel the need to create a growing archive of these small pills, a visual manifestation of the huge impact these pills have in my everyday life. On April 6th, 2022 I stopped taking birth control and therefore after that day, no longer paint the pills.
