Death

By Jessica Roca Diez

Dimensions: 14 in x 1 in x 22 in

Weight: 1.50 lbs

Medium: Collage, Inkjet Print, Paper

This collage is part of a larger four piece set, but could be purchased solo for the right offer! "Death" is a mash-up of the Horseman of the Apocalypse by the same name and Alphonse Mucha's "Summer" from his decorative series, "The Four Seasons." "Death" is the embodiment of unregulated and unethical Capitalism. Her gown is made of credit cards, and her laughing skull is an allusion to Jose Guadalupe Posada's "La Catrina" symbolism used to criticize Mexico's aristocratic elite. She stands in a pile of bones and cash, as arms reach up greedily at her. She is framed with bones. In the background, a forest is razed to clear space for cash crops and a stock arrow rises into the smoke. This piece is framed in a sleek black wood frame, and is ready to hang with d-rings and wire hanging hardware on the back.
