I recently switched my major from graphic design to sculpture. This is my redemption piece after having a rough semester. I welded a steel rod frame. I also bought chains and welded the links together. Lastly, I draped fabric over it and used a water and wood glue mixture to stiffen it. Thoughts?

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.
