The Coin Collection is the first in a series depicting varying kinds of ancient Greco/Roman coins. On a visual level these coins each represent an idea or symbol of something valuable yet intangible. Though they've been worn down by time and taken out of their initial political and monetary context, these works question how an image or picture may inspire and hold a kind of currency, representing a culture or individuals highest ideals, values, and beliefs. These works carry with them a meaningful and idiosyncratic connection to something more or greater.
