The work references the series of Currency Bag Paintings done in 2012 for the series Ends and Means which looked at the abstraction of values as a more “true” abstraction, the “new abstraction.” It is making us consider the former function and current representation of a placeholder of what once was a holder of value.

By reproducing and manipulating the original work, Lutz evaluates questions of uniqueness and reproducibility in American pop culture.
