“Art reminds us of all the possibilities we are persuaded to forget.”
- Jeanette Winterson
Statement about Designers on Money series
These drawing might resemble designs of bank notes. They are a departure from finite ideas, and an adoption of infinite possibilities of imagination. The series are fashioned to question value, familiarity, and the power of influence.
What people seem to struggle with are stories that fit their self-image. In that self-image they see ideal states and situations. These drawing ask questions about those stories, of perfection and forgotten ideals that helps destroy and create new worlds.
My research starts with depictions and flows into replications and counterfeit. In essence these research informs only the value of techniques and observation. The value of the work as art is to test personal biases and highlight unconscious choices.
