The Vampiric Series
(1992-1994)

This series is inspired by the vampire universe created by novelist Anne Rice. The painting She Is Going Toward Death (this page) dwells on addiction to blood and, by analogy, to drugs. Here, the vampire is reduced to a junkie whose moments of heroine-induced bliss bring AIDS and death rather than vampiric immortality.
