Artist's description:

100% hand built stretcher and canvas stretched and primed myself. This painting is from a series of paintings created after travelling around Thailand over summer 2012. The works were inspired by the decorative gold surrounding much of Thailand, but ask the question as to why there is so much gold in such a poverty stricken country? The series of works focused on imagery relating to poverty in the UK such as council estates which were decorated with gold leaf to emphasise the somewhat over use of gold to decorate much of the Thai architecture. The last in the series is a cityscape of London from the 6th Floor restaurant inside Tate Modern. This cityscape symbolises the wealth within London, hence the architecture being formed from solid gold.
