Dr. Keith Ablow, a leading psychiatrist and New York Times best-selling author, has recently enetered the world of fine art, creating handwritten prescriptions pritned on archival paper affixed to aluminum that often use irony to underscore
larger issues of excess in modern culture. Affected by the 2016 New York state law requiring all prescriptions to be
filled electronically, Ablow began repurposing the original prescription pads, turning them into art that intends to"
make people think or move them to action." His blown-up works highlight America's obsession with prescriptions,
and the tendency of psychiatrists to over-prescribe and under-talk in the digital age.
