The Death of High Society

This piece was painted as a response to the fact that High Art and High Society is dying out and that more artist will make money in todays economical climate by doing more commercial and easily accessible art, such as graphic design or web design than by doing high art such as sculpture and painting.

The work is done in acrylic paint on a wooden pallete. The cheapness and industrial aspect of the materials really help to convay the message alongside the painted image of the skull and classicly dressed lady.
