The Financial Crisis Show - Art as a Derivative.
14 paintings, 20,000 words, one conclusion...

In 2010 Larry McGinity began a new series of paintings driven by his growing interest in the way economists, financial journalists and market players explained the ongoing financial crisis. He extensively researched financial media in the UK, US and Europe going back to 2007. He also attended conferences and seminars in order to understand financial markets and practices such as High Frequency Trading and Forex.

From these assembled texts, he created 14 thematic paintings in which some 1500 words of verbatim text relevant to each subject were employed. Each artwork focuses on a separate aspect of the financial crisis such as Subprime, HFT, Wall Street, Derivatives and City of London.

This now completed series is known as The Financial Crisis Show - Art as a Derivative.
