I was lucky enough to have the trust of an Art Director to make an abstract painting for Vogue Japan. The aspect of the article I riffed off was; monetary value is transitory in relation to it's framing. So when an object is viewed only through its subjective values it will ultimately come down to its cultural framing when determining the value of the object.
