In the early 90s, I worked extensively on the game of Monopoly. As an emblematic image of capitalism, Monopoly offered me a fertile ground to question this living model centered on consumption and enrichment, and to further reflect on the complex relationship that exists between art and money.
In Monopoly, all can be bought and all can be sold. The wealth gap between richest and poorest widens as the game progress, until one of the players owns everything that belonged to the others…
And so I saw the opportunity for me to also play my game, using my brushes. It was also at this time that phosphorescence appeared in my work. Over the years, I will have worked on the game boards as well as on the title deeds, the characters, and even on the banknotes. Everything is exploited in the land of Monopoly!
