Pemphigus is an autoimmune disorder that causes blistering and raw sores on skin and mucous membranes. As with other autoimmune disorders, it is caused when the body's defenses mistake its own tissues as foreign, and attack the cells. This particular autoimmune reaction is sometimes associated with the use of Penicillamine. Pemphigus is derived from the Greek pemphix, meaning bubble or blister.

"My boss and house stage manager Chad Houseknecht pulled me aside and told me to go score some cocaine for Debbie's guitarist/lover Chris Stein. He told me, "It's kind of complicated, because Chris is really weird, he said he can't buy drugs from strangers, so he gave me this knife as a present, so that meant we were friends, and so now I can sell him drugs..."

There had recently been a Rolling Stone article on him, and he showed me a knife that had been mentioned in the article. This knife folded up into a rectangular case about the size of a credit card. It had been given to him, I believe, by John Steinbeck, Jr. He mused that if you didn’t like your bill at the restaurant, you could casually pull this thing out of your credit card pouch and- poof- you’d have a dead waiter before he could even protest. He also showed me a magazine article on the proposed Biosphere Project in Arizona. This project was to build an enclosed atmosphere, intended to study the possibilities of maintaining life on another planet. He was interested in this project, and planned to visit it.

Andy decided what kind he wanted to paint in a manner typical for him. He asked Jay to buy some kitchen knives and bring them to the studio. He was living in Andys building at 342 Bowery, near many restaurant supply businesses. Jay brought Andy an assortment of knives and of course, the receipt for them. Andy then took Polaroids of the knives in various combination's and formations. He was also looking around for different types of knives and daggers. We knew our friend Chris Stein (co-founder of the band Blondie) collected knives. It was some of his more exotic and sinister knives that Andy took Polaroids of in many different configurations. After the photography, the editing started. People would assume Andys choice for the paintings would be Chris's group of unusual daggers and handmade knives. Instead he chooses the common object, considered by most of us as nothing special, and elevating it to art. Kitchen knives never looked more interesting or beautiful.
