Shipping to United States: $15.27

"Fox in the hen house" 2020 is originally oil on cradled birch. Please note this listing is for a print on canvas ready to hang and not an original painting, please pm me to arrange purchase of originals or to commission an original.

This piece is a social commentary on wealth inequity. The fox represents the sly and convincing nature of the importance of a capitalist society paradigm. The illusion of safety within the system, by outward appearance and propaganda creation to convince the plebeians (the average working class) they are “going to be alright”. Golden eggs represent the producing power of the masses and the theft of that product to enrich the pockets of the already grossly wealthy elite. I feel instead of using historical figures in human history to describe this work, using the seemingly innocuous nature of animals better represents the basic ideas presented. I was heavily influenced by concepts presented in Animal Farm by George Orwell.
“Man serves the interests of no creature except himself”. George Orwell ,Animal Farm.

Please also note that I order my prints from a print supplier out of the United States and therefor they need 3 to 5 days to process and print the image and then a week to 2 weeks to ship. Please be patient awaiting the arrival of my work as shipping times vary and I have little control over the speed of that.
thank you for looking and ordering! you are supporting a small independent Canadian artist and every sale is appreciated and made with care and attention by myself.
