Justine Smith

Justine Smith
1971

The work of Justine Smith is concerned with the concept of money and how it touches almost every aspect of our lives. She is interested in money as a conduit of power and also in the value systems with which we surround it. On a physical level a banknote is just a piece of paper, but it is what a banknote actually represents that is central to Smith’s work. Through her collages, prints and sculptures she examines our relationship with money on a political, moral and social level.

She has exhibited in galleries and museums internationally, and has work in the collections of the British Council, the UK Government Art Collection, financial institutions, international corporations and numerous private collections. She lives and works in London.

Buy signed limited edition prints, original work and sculpture by Justine Smith at Opus Fine Art; the home of Contemporary art.
