Jim O’Raw

I'm an artist / printmaker.

My focus has been centred around luck and financial trappings, using the lottery with an emphasis on scratch cards as a symbol of escape, a golden ticket juxtaposed with day to day realities. I've been especially drawn to scratch cards due to their aesthetic appeal, finite shelf life and winning algorithms.

Through research and experimentation my aim is to create artefacts using minimum wage as a price point.
