SOLD 7″ x 9″ x 5″ Home Remedy is an assemblage piece. Assemblage is the art of gathering and presenting found objects in a thematic or simply pleasing format. This piece represents home remedies. The china head is something I found in a dump some 25 years ago. Here it represents the sick child, or a child forced to take a home tonic. His body and the two bottles in the front are antique medicine bottles from an old pharmacy in Patchogue, NY. The papers covering the outside of the box are over 100 years old, from a druggist company, Ayers, that made remedy concoctions. The cover of the booklet is on the back of the piece. The inside papers are from a home care booklet published in 1955 on taking care of baby. The top item is an antique pestle.
