Faces That Make Money

@ VOL 27 ON DEC 18, 2015

The distinctive pieces introduced here combine a collage made of real devalued international currency and layers of varnish over which Royi Akavia paints the portraits of modern subjects who have money, make money and spend money. The works are also burned with fire to create a glasslike 3-D surface reminiscent of old world craftsmanship. The end result: The rich and famous – such as Queen Elizabeth – are situated atop such personalities as Bolivar, Leonardo, Lenin and Margaret Thatcher.
