Too Much? Is a unique and one of a kind piece. The most provocative functional sculpture of the moment. Created in collaboration with the Spanish plastic artist Alejandro Monge. A work of art-design that invites you to think about the value of money and its significance.
A bill is only a piece of paper with a figure on it; 20, 50, 100. A number that on its own has no value except for the price we want to put to our time or the value we give to our desires.
White pieces of paper are the starting point of this artwork. The artist hand-draws each piece, using a 50 Euro bill as a model. The genre of painting is hyperrealism, a technique that resembles a high-resolution photograph.
Subsequently each painted bill is sculpted with a type of resin that petrifies each sheet, in order to create the ashes. Finally hand painted to give it its burnt appearance.
