Death to Penny

Propaganda Print, 2013

I created this print in 2013 after the Canadian Government decided to phase out the penny from Canada's coinage system. It was a frequent topic of conversation in my group, and most people wanted to "throw their two cents in" on the issue.

The everyday Canadian voice is not heard, or honoured, in our political system and this print aims to exploit that. 

 

This is a three-colour screen print done on Mayfair paper. The paper size is 16x20". 

 

Death to Penny is an award winning print, taking home the Social Sciences and Humanities Award at the 2013 Lakehead University Juried Exhibition.
