filling/spilling/mixing

Since setting up a small printing lab at home I have started to play around with combinations of drawing and printing. I used a strong graphic line for the flasks, which also acts as a symbol which identifies as a container. I am creating these works into a series of potions. In my research to do with the Malleus Maleficarum (the witch’s hammer) I started to think about magic spells and potions. In particular the ‘Love potion’ which in the HOODOO culture uses menstrual blood as an ingredient acting as an aphrodisiac.
