Money, Power, Sex & Mark Wagner

These amazingly intricate currency collages are the work of brooklyn-based artist, writer and book-maker Mark Wagner.

He strives to create, "something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable... the foreign in the familiar" and uses only one dollar bills in his masterpieces, what he describes as, "the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America" and "a ripe material: intaglio printed on sturdy linen stock, covered in decorative filigree, and steeped in symbolism and concept".

Watch him at work in this great little stop motion...

If you're lucky enough to be in New York next month you can check out his work in person at the Pavel Noubok Gallery. His next exhibition, 'Money, Power, Sex & Mark Wagner' starts on the 6th September and runs until 5th October 2013.
