I paid $90 to exhibit $100

As part of "Evolution" curated by the marvellous Emily Hunt at 55 Sydenham Road, I painted a $100 bill on the floor. I had heard that Rembrandt's students would paint kroners on the floor and snigger as he tried to pick them up, they had learnt well. My simulation of the $100 bill wasn't as realistic as theirs, however in the context of Evolution I could only imagine the bending over to scrutinise my work and felt it was effective.

I learn to see things more clearly when I scrutinise the original.
