"Economic Equality" gouache & collage 37x24 $700
o The United States has the largest gap between rich and poor than any industrialized nation.
o Bill Gates' wealth is equal to that of 120,000,000 U.S. citizens.
o At no time in the U.S. has there been economic democracy.
o The Holy Grail in the U.S. is not freedom or religion - it is money.
o I have done so many paintings about this issue that a different presentation of it was inevitable – one without pictures.
o The painting is on 2 pieces of illustration board. It would be easy to claim that that had something to do with the economic split, but it was cropped from a two-panel painting.
o Should I have priced the painting at $699.99 instead of $700 in keeping with the silliness of standard Capitalistic practices?
