"Current Affairs" is a series of works that respond both to pre and post election, personally as a woman, and more broadly, as a citizen reconsidering social justice and the integrity of the political climate.
"It Takes a Lot of Balls" elicits the political transactions that are conducted by wealthy Americans behind closed doors in expensive golf and country clubs. The gilding evokes the affluence of the 25.8 billion dollar industry and emphasizes the monetary influence wielded in these circles. Yet instead of adding any value, the gold evokes the facsimile of wealth that we have come to associate with cheap tricks and disproportionately large egos. The oozing dollar sign at the top enforces this, depicting wealth that was not justifiably earned but obtained through corruption, draining resources from the masses.
