The central image is the "Life Hotel" that uses the word "methodone" as the basis for the structure---with the words "cocaine," "hash," "LSD," "opium," codeine," "peyote," and "DMT" written on the edge of the street that the hotel stands on. A roller coaster in front of the hotel winds its way into infinity. Surrounding the hotel are images representing the dangers encountered on one's roller coaster ride through life---a marijuana plant, a syringe dripping blood onto the word "heroin," a coiled snake with a skull and crossbones as a head and the words "dope is death" incorporated into the pattern on the snake's skin. The warning "speed kills" appears prominently at the top. Perhaps done in prison or a halfway house or maybe as a school project. An accomplished piece that stands among the most powerful works of this type that we've seen. A bit faded, but colors still vibrant, nice condition overall (15.5" x 20.25").

Price: $600.00
