Money.........

On this page you will find a selection of prints that deal with socio-economic issues. These may relate to consumption, environmental degradation or to personal and corporate greed.The field is wide open, consume as you will....

Here are some starting points for looking at the socio economic content of the prints : "At Last" refers to family who leave rural areas to work in cities , never to be seen again until they return to be buried. "Lotto I" refers to the lotto system, a chance to get rich quickly which is largely supported by those who can least afford it. "Three Sisters" portrays prostitutes on the streets of Gauteng. Thama Kase (Stuff in the Shop)  is from the Naro community of D'kar, a community which is moving from a hunter gatherer tradition to one of Western consumption. Sam Nhlengethwa's work refers to how people in poor urban communities make a plan and get by. "After lobola" comments on what can happen to couples once bride price has been paid. "Ms September" comments on the trade in rhino horn and its resulting effects on rhino populations and child prostitution.
