I've always made one thing or another. I don't know when I would have started calling those things art. I've gone through phases of drawing and painting, spent a long time as a letterpress printer, bookbinder, and publisher of artist books. I started cutting up money in 1999.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
is best known for his intricate collages made entirely from deconstructed US dollars. Wagner destroys thousands of bills yearly to create works which pointedly and playfully explore the intersection of wealth, power, value, and American identity. Wagner's audacious (and unlawful) destruction of this revered icon of American commerce is checked only by his virtuoso material manipulation, which renders what you will... portraits, plant like, fantastical beasts, or allegorical scenes recasting George Washington in every roll.
His work is collected by dozens of institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, the US Federal Reserve Board, and the Smithsonian Institution. It has shown at The Metropolitan Museum, The Getty Research Institute, and National Portrait Gallery in DC.
