Edie Nadelhaft, ‘BLTC: LMAO’, 2015, ArtStar: Holiday Sale

ArtStar collaborated with artist Edie Nadelhaft to create limited edition photos of her “Better Living Thru Chemistry” sculpture series, consisting of candy-colored glass and mixed media capsule-shaped objects. Each pill is festooned with text messages, social media iconography, and the language of pop psychology. Nadelhaft is inspired in equal parts by the ubiquitous presence of social media in contemporary culture and the simultaneous rise of direct - to - consumer pharmaceutical marketing. The work pokes fun at the simultaneously amusing and depressing correlations between the two phenomena as both are enlisted to oversimplify the human condition and expedite contentment through a familiar cocktail of instant gratification and seductive packaging.
