Scott Campbell’s sculptures crafted from cut currency reveal grim spectres. In his current show at Over the Influence Hong Kong, titled “Using All The Freedoms We Have,” new works are presented. Campbell was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Using only currency, Mark Wagner constructs surreal, intricate collaged scenes. Differing from fellow money collagists such as Joey Colombo, Wagner’s distinct monster-building adds an absorbing, pop quality to this strain of the form. Wagner’s Instagram profile has a humorous and apt shorthand for this approach: “art made from money made from art.”
