About the Artwork
Background, history, commissioner of the work
Displayed as part of the art trail 'Off the Grid' within the public space of the Merchant City, Glasgow. This work is part of a larger series of larger than life fabric poem-receipts.
I wanted to elevate the value of an everyday disposable object such as a receipt into something larger than life and luxurious. To me, receipts are like serendipitous poems or a secret window into someone's life. They also raise questions about how we value things. The viewer can interpret the list of sold items on this work as they wish.
