Collage With Currency

Artist Mark Wagner on his latest work, Collage With Currency which you can view on his site: "The one dollar bill is the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America. 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 into something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable... the foreign in the familiar."
