Artist Statement/Description of Work:

This single section pamphlet stitched booklet on artist made paper is a companion piece to Paradise Lost and part of Eric Avery’s work for Philagrafika – The Graphic Unconscious.
These recipes are not prescriptions for health and wellbeing.  They are chimeric fables nixing animals, humans and germs in ways that have produced history-changing plagues and incalculable misery and death.  Each Rxcipe is followed by an application meant to teach a lesson about the origin of infectious diseases and about our lives with animals.
Rxcipes for Disaster are:
-Conquest of the Americas ( Smallpox)
-Bush Meat Stew (HIV/AIDS)
- Cassoulet of Pork and Lamb in Beef or Chicken Broth (Influenza)
- Flight Avian Flu ( any airborne infectious diseases)
