Hello, this painting is a complex statement on the economics of modern society and the accompanying negative entrapments on humanity. "Mammon" means wealth regarded as an evil influence or false object of worship or devotion.

I found this painting at a car boot sale in the North of England, full of cobwebs looking like it had been in an attic for years. Unfortunately, there was no information about the artist, but they certainly have created a well thought out painting with rebellious anarchist messages that they have successfully portrayed.

There are scenes within this painting depicting the entrapment of modern life revolving around the machinery of the economy and employment, rendered fairly obvious in the oval imagery around the cogworks at the top section of the painting. Of note is the baby in the pram lower right, whos dummy is a little too close for comfort to the cigarette butt hanging from a mans looming face, another message here in the painting that could be read in several ways, Just below the cigarette is the message "Mammon" entering into the ear of another man. The saluting man could be military and represent false worship or devotion. A large essay could be written describing this painting.

The painting is not signed. It measures 23.5" by 35.5" inches, and is unframed.

This will be listed on eBay. Beforehand, does anyone recognise the artist or any parts of the imagery? I know it is a long shot, but if this is not by a disgruntled student, I would expect it to be by a known artist.


Thanks - Brooks
