Oil on Canvas, USD bills collage

Miss Valentine is the symbol of commercialism in love and¬†materialistic love.¬†Inspiration behind is how our societies have turned¬†the celebration of one of the most powerful human emotions into a feast of commercialism, while simultaneously it has become a common place to ‘manage’ who we ‘love’ according to social status.

The piece is a continuation of the USD bill series as a study of how capitalism acts as a prism on fundamental human emotions.
