Mark Wagner's medium is the prime American icon, the dollar bill. Through the painstaking process of collage, Wagner reimagines iconic portraits and makes new ones with a new sense of currency, giving new meaning to the term "face value" and archly appraising the status and intersection of money and fame without devaluing either. His art exemplifies the principle (and the principal) of value added.
