‘You’ll never be rich’ is a survey and simultaneously a self-analysis, focusing on my perspective of money. My recent works lately have involved laser printed currency [Pesos]. I can’t recall how many times I have been told “Money can’t buy happiness”. Society has always told me two conflicting messages about money. The first, being that money is crucial. Then, the contrary, the one that associates the wealthy with hidden troubles. That diligently works to teach us not to be jealous of them, but to see the constraints that lay in the surplus. Sometimes, it gets to the point of feeling that being broke is almost a blessing. However I feel about money, people with money, or the pursuit of money, can we agree that money is essential? Money can’t buy happiness, but the lack of it may bring stress and anger. In conclusion, we know money is needed, but “How much?” is the question I pose for others to answer.
