Diamond Queen was created to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2012. To create the piece, Smith sourced bank notes from across the Commonwealth countries.

About the artist
Justine Smith is a London-based artist who produces collages, prints and sculptures which explore the concept of money and how it touches almost every aspect of our lives in a political, moral and social sense.
Speaking of her work, Smith reveals: “In my artistic practice, money is my primary material. The power invested in these pieces of paper is immense, and for me, it is like working with an elemental force. In our capitalist world, money or the lack of it, governs almost every aspect of our lives, and my work seeks to explore money as a conduit of power. On a physical level a banknote is just a piece of paper, but it is what a banknote actually represents that is central to my work.”
Smith’s work features in a number of notable collections, including those of The British Museum, The Bank of England and The British Library.
