For some, money symbolises importance and power, while for others, it’s viewed as the root of all evil.
Regardless of one’s perspective, its integration into art conveys a strong message. Penny, also known as Jim Penfold, perceives money as the ‘omnipresent voyeur’ and finds equal intrigue in the message it conveys and its potential as a medium for exceptional art. His distinctive viewpoint is that pound notes are well-suited for slapstick art, while dollar bills serve as the canvas for some of his more serious and thought-provoking works.
