It's Just Paper is based on an original mixed-media painting which consisted of a digitally designed print and acrylic paint. Time is our most valuable currency. Money is a necessity but how are we choosing to spend our time? This piece is a reminder of how precious that choice is. The three clocks represent New York, London and Tokyo which are home to the largest stock exchanges in the world. The digitally printed background consists of currency from each of those cities. “INVEST WISELY” is repeated backwards throughout the piece with the hidden message “IT’S JUST PAPER.”
