Artwork description

Our society and culture increasingly value economic profit and personal advancement above all else; an individualistic and capitalist-driven worldview that can only lead to division and catastrophe. It is no-longer conjecture that businesses conspire to make profit from activities long-since known to be toxic to the world. 

‘Profit and self above all else’, on one level, acts as a critical observation of this problem. It could also be taken as a mantra for the American Psycho generation, reading as something of an objectivist tenet.
