Aimed at 16+ this resource uses the artwork Plenty and Progress by Mark Titchner which questions traditional ideas of wealth creation and the financial sector in the City of London. The polished stainless steel, which is back-painted in red, creates a work that may be seen as reminiscent of silver, therefore wealth, or perhaps as representative of industry. However the red background could be viewed as brash, confrontational, or even as representing blood. Titchner’s texts are taken from sources as diverse as Victorian socialist writing and self-help mantras. Set against an ornamental backdrop Plenty and Progress also seems almost heraldic.

The resource provides prompts for discussions and creative activities inspired by the artwork.
