Artist Russ White’s latest series explores the meaning of the word “wealth.” There’s financial wealth, which can grant access to the material things that make life more pleasant. And then there is spiritual wealth, which is measured on a less quantitative, more fluid scale. For “Loose Change,” White creates photo-realistic drawings of everyday people. These large works, inspired by the portraiture found on our coins and paper money, invite viewers to question their definition of wealth, and what it means in an era where the vast majority of us are financially in the have-not category.
