Painted on $50,000 worth of obsolete Vietnamese Dong, Brian Drake reflects on the value of labor and currency in Southeast Asia. Today the Vietnamese Dong is usually in top three of most worthless bank notes in the world compared to the the Pound or Dollar. Vivid colors and geometry intersect with texture, to challenge current western narratives and ideoalgy.
Hangs from included modified french cleat, for flush to the wall, no frame presentation.
