’50 Quids’ is a series of drawings realised using black ink on paper.
The series is developed starting from other two artworks — ‘Crappy Sheet’ and ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ — and integrating them with a new concept.
The iconic subject of the £50 banknote is monochromatically depicted on a worthless piece of paper. The banknote becomes the pretext for the mise-en-scène of the painting, a medium that elevates its nominal value above its poor materials.
