Title: show me the money
Technique: Aluminum / golden dollars / high gloss resin
The artwork “Show me the money” created by artist Diederik van Apple is a unique piece that uses modern art techniques to create an impressive visual impact. Measuring 105x95cm and made of aluminum, golden dollars, and high gloss resin, the work addresses the theme of obsession with money and wealth in our society.
The piece displays a large amount of golden dollars that seem to explode from the surface, surrounded by a shiny layer of resin. Scrooge McDuck is portrayed jumping towards the dollars, adding a playful and irreverent dimension to the work.
The golden dollars are arranged in an organic and irregular way, creating the illusion of an expanding surface. The reflective nature of gold and resin creates a dynamic interaction with light, giving the impression that the work comes to life.
The edition of “Show me the money” is limited to 10 pieces, which adds exclusivity and value to the artwork. The piece is an invitation to reflect on the complex relationship between money, power, and modern society.
