Wealth is Shared - No One Charges, No One Pays 2000
  • Scottish Art
This is the right-hand panel of a triptych. In the scene, a supermarket has been converted into a large greenhouse so that people can be self-sufficient and grow their own food. Outside, fruit trees and vegetables are growing where the supermarket car park used to be. Children play happily in the river, showing a balance of work and recreation. The painting shows a lifestyle that is an attainable and preferable alternative to contemporary society. The simple, clear writing style is based on the typeface of captions in Ladybird educational books for children.
