This print is the first in a series of prints based on the work of George Orwell. In his book “Keep the Aspidistra Flying”, new families tend to display an unwitting expression of their middle class status by displaying these plants. Almost a hundred years after Orwell’s work, our own middle class is more likely to be punctuated by lack of health care and stability. In this print, I chose to represent the leaves of Orwell’s plant as the double helix in the DNA, as a tangible connection to our requirement to keep jobs we may not like for the rest of our lives, so that we can maintain health insurance
