Justine Smith

Born in 1971, Justine studied at City and Guilds of London Art School. Her work is exhibited in galleries and museums around the world and in the collections of the British Council, international corporations and private collections. She lives and works in London.

Paper is a basic material for any artist, however, for Justine, paper money has become the medium and the knife she uses, her pen. A note is not only an abstract representation of our labour, but the imagery depicted on it also symbolises the ideas and ideals of a given country's culture and the society that its people live in.

Her work explores our relationship with money and our response to it, in a political, moral and social sense, whilst also exploiting the physical beauty of the note.
