‘Making Cents: Life Below the Bottom Rung’
Exhibition Launch 6.30pm, Thursday 7th October 2010.
Open daily, Monday – Friday, in the afternoon.
‘Making Cents’ is a new series of oil paintings examining the daily existence of people making a living in the worst working conditions in the global economy.
The globalisation of the world economy has allowed for extremes of exploitation of workers in poor countries. This exploitation is ‘hidden’ behind advertising and aesthetically designed products. Looking at the people behind the products reminds us that our lifestyle has its negative side too.
