Mark Wagner - Money is Material
Mark Wagner is a multi-talented writer, publisher and artist who creates highly fascinating collage through the dissection and repurposing of currency. In the video below entitled Money is Material, Wagner explains how in each piece he tends to stick to subject matter related to currency, issues such as the creation or division of wealth.
Wagner says, “The one dollar bill is the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America. Collage asks the question: what might be done to make it something else? It is a ripe material: intaglio printed on sturdy linen stock, covered in decorative filigree, and steeped in symbolism and concept. Blade and glue transform it-reproducing the effects of tapestries, paints, engravings, mosaics, and computers—striving for something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable… the foreign in the familiar.”
