In her exhibition,Transaction, Myfanwy Johns presents a series of paintings that link seventeenth century tulip mania in Holland, with contemporary financial investments, such as the stock market and crypto currencies. Human nature has both a desire to create and exploit. All transactions are acts of hope where the purchaser wishes to benefit from future accruals of money. Paintings, in their own, right are also much like investment commodities, where collectors speculate on their value increasing for future transactions.
