Artist Statement: My depiction of "The Great Recession Of 2008" is a document of events leading up to the Global Financial Crisis.
One side shows how Main Street was affected by the actions of the Big Banks,
Insurance Companies and Wall Street. The other side shows how the dominos
tumbled after the fall of Lehman Brothers on September 15, 2008. Perilously
close to bringing down the entire financial system.
Crowned by the Piggy Banker who is unable to see beyond his own Golden
Parachute, excessively enriching himself at the expense of all others.
