Growth

Growth, 36″x30″, acrylic and paper on canvas, 2011

This painting is based on Alana’s consulting work for a mutual-fund client, and is in the collection of VAULT Solutions Inc.
Two mutual funds appear as vines, with each tendril’s length reflecting performance for one year. A pie chart of investment categories has a shadow covering 2.25% of the canvas, the Management Expense Ratio. The rounded rectangles in the background, and the white symbols on them, are based on data models of the structure of fund families & series. The rounded rectangles contain data from a large spreadsheet created during the project, manipulated for confidentiality.
